THE LOCATION of the NAB AFLW Grand Final is yet to be determined, AFL general manager of women's football Nicole Livingstone has said.
The change in season timing means the larger stadiums are set to be in cricket mode around the finals time of November, with the Grand Final to be played on the weekend of November 26.
The Grand Final has been played at Metricon Stadium (2017, home team Brisbane), Ikon Park (2018, home team Western Bulldogs) and Adelaide Oval (2019, 2021 and 2022, home team Adelaide).
The men's Twenty20 World Cup will be hosted in Australian in October and November, with finals scheduled for the SCG, Adelaide Oval and the MCG in mid-November.
A report several weeks ago suggested the AFL was eyeing off Marvel Stadium as a long-term host of the AFLW Grand Final, a change in the previous approach of hosting rights going to the highest-ranked side.
"One of the unique things about AFLW is to actually award the Grand Final to the top- finishing club that makes it into the Grand Final," Livingstone said.
"Whilst that's also difficult for us to very quickly put things in place in a couple of weeks, for now, that's part of the uniqueness of AFLW.
"Players, clubs, they appreciate the opportunity to have that as a reward for their year.
"No discussions on locking it in as yet, but we focus on season seven and putting on not only a great season of 90 home and away matches, but also four weeks of finals."
