THE AFL has confirmed three potential venues for the 2022 NAB AFLW Grand Final Season 7, with Brighton Homes Arena in Brisbane, Marvel Stadium in Melbourne and Hisense Stadium in Adelaide all live options.
The Grand Final will be held at 2.40pm AEDT/1.40pm AEST/2.10pm ACDT on Sunday, November 27, but the ultimate host will be decided after this weekend's preliminary finals.
In the AFLW, the Grand Final side that finished the highest on the ladder hosts the decider.
FULL STATEMENT Venues and date confirmed for the 2022 NAB AFLW Grand Final Season 7
Brisbane finished atop the ladder after the home and away season, and the club's new base at Brighton Homes Arena in Springfield will host the match if the Lions beat Adelaide on Friday night.
If the Lions lose and second-placed Melbourne beats North Melbourne on Saturday afternoon, the Grand Final will be played at Marvel Stadium.
Should both the Lions and Demons lose their respective preliminary finals, third-placed Adelaide will host at Hisense Stadium in South Australia.
The announcement puts to rest weeks of speculations as to where the minor premiers could host a Grand Final, with both the Gabba and Metricon Stadium unavailable the weekend of the Grand Final.

The turf at Brighton Homes Arena was laid only a month ago, but the AFL has confirmed the venue is ready.
Hisense Stadium last hosted an AFLW match in March 2020, but hosted an AAMI Community Series match earlier this year.
