AFL Grand Final in Geneva

OK people, Saturday is the biggest day in the Australian calendar. The last Saturday in September is AFL Grand Final day.
Does anybody know if there is a venue somewhere in Geneva that is showing the game?

I would guess the Clubhouse in Paquis would be a good bet.

Run by a kiwi with lots of antipodean customers.

Re: AFL Grand Final in Geneva

If all else fails you can subscribe to http://www.afl.livesport.tv/ for $10? and watch the game live on the internet.

Not as good as a room ful of AFl fans for sure, but better than nothing.

Already subscribed to livesport.tv which is very good. However, we have visitors and would like to watch the Swannies win the flag with some brethren.

Ahhh no the Melbourne cup is easily the biggest day. AFL is just bunch of people kicking a ball at a set of posts totally unimportant!
