If you're not one of the thousands of West Coast Eagles fans that have sold out all of the Jetstar and Tigerair flights to Melbourne this weekend for the AFL Grand Final, then you're probably wondering where you're going to watch the clash at home.
Watching the AFL Grand Final from the comfort of your own home is always a good idea, but sometimes, you don't want your mates leaving you with a bunch of dishes for you to clean up afterwards.
If this sounds like a nightmare for you, but you still want to watch the game with your mates and a crowd of other Eagles fans, then may we recommend attending one of the many events happening in Perth this Saturday?!
Sports bars all of the city will be opening their doors for the big dance and we've narrowed down the best venues for you to check out, so you're guaranteed a great Grand Final experience.
Yes, you can watch this weekend's AFL Grand Final at Optus Stadium, where it will be broadcast on a massive big screen! Tickets are being sold for $5 each and will go towards Telethon, so you're having a good day out and raising money for charity at the same time!
The Crown Sports Bar
The venue has been there for you all season, broadcasting every single West Coast Eagles game and this Saturday it'll be no different. They'll be showing the game on their massive big screens and pumping out the $8 pints, however, they're expecting around 3,000 people to come and watch the game, so you better get in quick to score a good spot.
