This is the lunch to crown all lunches for the year. The Variety AFL Great Grand Final Lunch is THE place to be in Grand Final Week and will be held at the home of the Brownlow, Palladium at Crown from 11.30am (for 12noon) Wednesday 30 September 2015. Dress code is smart business attire, but feel free to be a little creative and add a footy twist to it.

A sell-out every year, you'll enjoy a three course lunch with fine wines and beer, and meet and greet some of AFL's hottest stars and Variety Celebrity Ambassadors. Enjoy the thrill of having your photo taken with the Official Premiership Cup before it's presented to the Grand Final Champions on the big day.

Craig Willis will be the MC and special guests include Nathan Buckley (Collingwood Senior Coach) and Brenton Sanderson (AFL National Academy Head Coach and former Crows Senior Coach). Lenny Hayes (former St Kilda player, played 297 games) will also be there with many more to be announced!

Bear witness to the annual Tom Hafey Heart of Football Award presented to an outstanding community minded AFL player who has continually displayed outstanding commitment to children. The Young Sports Achiever Award is also presented each year to a special young person who has overcome adversity to achieve an outstanding level of success in the sporting arena.

This lunch has been kicking goals for disadvantaged children for over 30 years. Officially endorsed by the AFL and through the support of the football community, an incredible 1 million dollars has been raised and changed the lives of thousands of Australian kids in its path. Come along and meet some of the kids who directly benefit from your support on the day.


Take part in the fantastic Live and Silent Auctions. You could also win a brand new Suzuki Kizashi AWD valued at $39,990 with the 2015 Lunch Raffle which will be drawn at the event.
