Venues across the country are set for a bumper night tonight as the AFL season kicks off with a Grand Final rematch between Melbourne and Western Bulldogs. All the action is live and ad-break free on FOX FOOTY.

Melbourne start the season as favourites to retain the AFL crown and fans across the country will be heading to their local tonight to see if they will start this season in the same impressive way they finished the last.

Venues can look forward to showing unrivalled coverage as only Foxtel shows every game of every round throughout the season, live and ad-break free during play with the biggest names in the business, including: Gerard Whateley, Mark Robinson, Jonathon Brown, Nathan Buckley, Mark Howard, Nick Riewoldt, Kath Loughnan, Gary Lyon, Sarah Jones and Kelli Underwood.

As well as tonight’s opening blockbuster, this week promises huge AFL action with Thursday seeing Carlton take on Richmond, St Kilda facing Collingwood on Friday and then Saturday’s triple header includes a mouth-watering Sydney derby.

Venues across the country have already seen the power of footy, with last weekend’s NRL season kicking off and punters flocking to the pub in droves to see all the action. This boost in trade is key for venues after a tough two years with Covid, lockdowns and capacity restrictions. 

One huge feature this season is the Saturday triple header, with both the NRL and AFL putting on three games on Saturday, and Foxtel being the only provider showing every single one of them.

Make sure your venue is part of the action and you’re able to give your punters what they want with the best AFL coverage available.

In addition to showing every game of every round, live and ad-break free during play, Foxtel also partners with FANZO, formally MatchPint, which makes it easier for venues to promote the games on their platform, helping to bring even more punters through the door.

So footy is back and it’s great news for venues with Foxtel covering all your needs, live and ad-break free during play. Live sport is a great way to get people into your venues, so for more information and to be part of the action head to the Foxtel website, or call 1300 761 056.
