AFL Finals 2019

September 5 - September 28, 2019

The 2019 AFL Finals Series saw Richmond win the Grand Final over GWS by 89 points 

The 2019 AFL Finals provide Aussie Rules betting fans with some of the best opportunities to enjoy a footy bet of the year with everything going on the line for the Top 8 remaining teams in the Premiership heading towards the AFL Grand Final held at the MCG on a Saturday in late September or early October.

Each season the annual AFL Premiership takes place around the country with the 23 week regular or home-and-away season featuring the league’s 18 clubs facing off in the AFL fixtures for competition points and ladder positioning.

The eight AFL teams occupying the top eight ranks on the AFL Ladder then face off in the end-of-season finals series across four weeks, with two clubs eliminated from the playoffs in the opening three weeks.

The remaining two teams then come head-to-head in the highly anticipated Grand Final AFL game in the fourth week of the finals, and the winner of that clash is rewarded with the Premiership title and fanfare.

AFL Premiership betting is open across the season with all-in prices for each club on offer to punters.

AFL FINALS SYSTEM

AFL Finals Series

AFL Finals System Structure.

From 1994 – 1999 the AFL Finals series used the McIntyre System, but the new format gives the top four teams at the end of the home-and-away season an easier Grand Final lead-up. Below is a run through of how the AFL Premiership Finals Series works.

AFL Finals Week 1: Qualifying & Elimination

Four games are played in the first week of the finals series. Two are Qualifying Finals played between the top four clubs on the AFL ladder and the remaining two are Elimination Finals between teams 5 – 8 on the premiership table. Qualifying winners get a week of rest in the second round of finals, while the losing teams play in the semis against the Elimination winners.

  • Qualifying Final 1: 1st (Home) vs. 4th (Away)
  • Elimination Final 1: 5th (Home) vs. 8th (Away)
  • Elimination Final 2: 6th (Home) vs. 7th (Away)
  • Qualifying Final 2: 2nd (Home) vs. 3rd (Away)

AFL Finals Week 2: Semi-Finals

In Week 2 of the AFL finals series the loser of the first qualifier gets the home ground advantage hosting the winner of the first elimination; and the winner of the second elimination plays away to the loser of the second qualifying game the previous week. Both games are must-win knock-outs and determine the two Week 3 final line-ups.

  • Semi Final 1: Week 1 First Qualifiers Loser (Home) vs. Week 1 First Elimination Winner (Away).
  • Semi Final 2: Week 1 Second Qualifiers Loser (Home) vs. Week 1 Second Elimination Winner (Away).

AFL Finals Week 3: Preliminary Finals

AFL Grand Final - MCG

The MCG is home to the AFL Grand Final each season.

The AFL Preliminary finals are the last stepping stone to a Grand Final appearance the following week with two more clubs knocked out of contention at the end of the two games. After a week off the first and second Qualifying Finals winners get home advantage over the two Semi-Final winners.

  • Preliminary Final 1: Week 1 First Qualifiers Winner (Home) vs Semi Final 2 Winner (Away)
  • Preliminary Final 2: Week 1 Second Qualifiers Winner (Home) vs Semi Final 1 Winner (Away)

AFL Finals Week 4: AFL Grand Final

In the fourth and final week of the AFL finals series the much awaited Grand Final is contested at the Melbourne Cricket Ground between the two Preliminary winners. Check out our AFL Grand Final page for more information.
