It's much more than a game. While two teams fight to claim the AFL premiership in 2022, millions of dollars will be injected into the Victorian economy, the AFL’s coffers and the broadcaster's bank, while the clubs and players don't miss out either.
And it's not just the athletes who take to the field on Saturday afternoon, as legends and past players hit the event circuit for countless paid appearances. Tredders reckons one AFL personality is rumoured to pocket as much as $70,000 cash hosting events during grand final week in Melbourne!
