A second team will have their AFL season brought to a close in the first week of AFL finals when the GWS Giants and Western Bulldogs clash in a do or die elimination final. This is The Roar’s guide to live streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.
The match is scheduled to have its first bounce at 3:20pm (AEST) on Saturday, September 7, with it to be held at the newly-named Giants Stadium, which was formerly known as the Sydney Showground within the Sydney Olympic precinct.
The GWS Giants got themselves home ground advantage for this match after locking up sixth spot on the ladder, but they won’t get a valuable second chance as they take on the Western Bulldogs, with the loser set to make their way onto Mad Monday next week.
The Giants will come into this match as a slim favourite, but there is a genuine feeling this contest could go either way, with neither team showing a great deal of consistency throughout the regular season.
This huge elimination final, just like the rest of the AFL finals throughout the first three weeks of action, will be available in two different ways.
The first of those ways will be through Fox Footy, who will broadcast the match on Channel 504. Their coverage will commence at 2:30pm (AEST).
This is a Foxtel channel, so to watch the coverage, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package.
The other way to tune into the AFL finals will be through Channel 7, who have the free to air rights to the season and finals series.
If you’d prefer to tune into the game through a live stream online, you’ll be able to do so fairly easily, with a number of methods available to you.
The best of those is to use Kayo Sports, who are a live streaming platform holding the rights to show all of Foxtel’s sports channels, as well as other selected events.
If you’d prefer to stream the Channel 7 coverage for free, then you can use the 7Plus application or website.
Here at The Roar, you’ll be able to tune into all the action with our live scores, blog and highlights from 3pm (AEST) on Saturday.
