AFL’s Grand Final parade fan site details unveiled

The AFL is getting set to unleash an extravagant new fan site for the upcoming Grand Final parade.

After last year’s disaster on the water, the parade will return to the roads with the Herald Sun revealing this year’s edition will commence from Melbourne Park.

In the middle of the oval will be a cube stage with screens on every side, it means no matter where you’re positioned you’ll have an eye on all the action unfolding.

The live site will remain operational for the AFLW double header on the Friday night while it could also be used for the AFL Grand Final.

The parade kicks off at 10:30am (AEST) and will be broadcast exclusively on Fox Footy.
