THE AFL is pleased to announce Australian indie-pop artist G Flip will perform at the pre-game entertainment show for the 2021 NAB AFLW Grand Final on Saturday April 17.
G Flip (also known as Georgia Flipo) came onto the music scene in 2018, following the release of her breakout single About You from her debut album ‘About Us’.
The Melbourne-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has received a host of music accolades including a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork, coverage from iconic publications Rolling Stone and L.A Times and has sold-out headline shows in Australia and overseas.
G Flip – a proud Collingwood fan- said she was thrilled to be performing on the biggest day on the women’s football calendar.
"It’s such a privilege and an honour to be playing at the 2021 NAB AFLW Grand Final," she said.
"I’ve been a footy fan since my Dad put a Magpies scarf around my neck as a baby and I haven’t missed a Pies game this season.
"I don’t just like footy, I love footy. This will be one of the highlights of my life, I’m very excited."
Both the national anthem and Welcome to Country will be performed by local talent as part of the pre-game formalities.
AFL Executive General Manager Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said it was exciting to celebrate another fantastic year of female football with a great line-up of Australian talent.
"We’re delighted to have G Flip and some exciting local talent entertain fans ahead of the 2021 NAB AFLW Grand Final," she said.
"Football fans have already experienced some incredible AFLW action this season, so I’m sure the battle between Adelaide Crows and Brisbane Lions will cap off a terrific year of elite women’s football.
"Australians have been starved of attending live music since the global pandemic began, so we hope to see as many G Flip and football fans secure their seat at the NAB AFLW Grand Final and fill the stadium in celebration of women’s football."
The 2021 NAB AFL Women’s Grand Final will be broadcast live on the Seven Network and FOX FOOTY and streamed live via Kayo, womens.afl and the AFLW Official App.
Tickets for the 2021 NAB AFL Women’s Grand Final will go on sale for Competing Club Members at 3:30pm (ACST) and 4:30pm (ACST) for General Public on Tuesday April 13. Tickets are $10 for adults with FREE entry for children under 18.
