    Hey guys

    Mad Saints fan stuck in South America right now. :thumbsu:

    Does anyone know if Fox or another channel broadcasts the finals (particularly the GF) throughout South America?

    Listening on the radio through the internet would give me 7 heart attacks.. ha!

    cheers

    I'm in Windsor, Canada atm. If anyone knows a place to watch the game there that'd be great.
    I'm told TSN covers it, can anyone confirm this?
    Cheers folks.

    yeah mate TSN would definitely cover it in Canada. Met a Canadian dude who plays AFL over there for Vancouver Saints or something.

    He said regular games get played LIVE occasionally.

    Hope this helps... but I still need confirmation for Peru! haha (There is NO TV guide anywhere here......)

    I live in Calgary and CAN confirm that TSN does show 1 game of AFL a week. They showed the crows pies semi friday night. THey are picking up a prelim not sure which one and are playing the GF. Mind you there are HEAPS of pubs around Canada showing it. I found one here in Calgary should be an awesome night! Aussies, meat pies and footy... helps keep the home sickness away.

    all I know is ESPN stream AFL now including the finals. Not sure if that's in South American but it is the case in the USA.

    Stupid AFL, so much for exporting the game that no one on the continent has broadcast rights to the games live.

    We have a constantly updating list of GF parties around the world here - 2009 AFL Grand Final Parties .

    I will paste the current list below. As for South America I think you are out of luck (see the comments here from the AFL).

    2009 AFL Grand Final Parties
    by Troy Thompson


    Once again World Footy News is proud to present you with a wide list of venues to watch the 2009 AFL Grand Final around the world. Feel free to add any venues that are not listed below in the comments section and we will add them to the main list.
    We are aware that the coverage on ESPN2 in the US is scheduled to be on a 2 hour delay, while on ESPN360 the game is to be streamed live. This may affect some planned events in the US as the ESPN2 coverage will not begin until 2am EDT. There is some lobbying in action to try to get ESPN2 to show the game live. For more information on this please check in with our friends at AFANA


    Please note: The information is entered here in good faith. worldfootynews.com is not responsible for any incorrect information posted to this story. Wherever possible attempt to check ahead to make sure the party you are planning on attending is still going ahead and has room for you. There have been cases of sell outs and late changes e.g. when a venue could not secure a telecast.

    Thanks for that. A friend of mine has just started on exchange for Lyon, I Googled pubs and found that one but he thinks it won't be showing it (apparently run by a Canadian and not that 'Australian'). Cheers the tip though.

    If your mate in Lyon doesnt mind a small road trip, try Lady Godiva or the Pickwick in Geneva. I watched some finals footy there a couple of years back.

    Hey mate.. check this thread.

    http://bigfooty.com/forum/showthread.php?t=633059


    I'm currently in Abu Dhabi. I know that Showtime Sports typically covers four live games a week during the Home and Away season. During finals I assume all of them are live. But if anyone knows any parties/ sports bars that will be open for the GRAND FINAL please contact me.

    Alternatively, I may be in Lebanon .. so similarly if anyone knows WHERE in LEBANON I can catch the grand final live I would be much appreciative

    Thanks!

    From mentioned website:
    Stuck overseas on the last Saturday in September? Never fear!
    Hosting a party? Enter your details here

    The 2009 Toyota AFL Grand Final might be impossible to miss here at home, but for thousands of stranded Aussies (and bemused locals) overseas, finding a place to follow the big game in style can be a struggle.

    So we've invited the pubs, clubs, hotels and establishments of the world to tell us where they are and what they're doing to celebrate the 2009 Toyota AFL Grand Final, so we can plot it all on a map.

    So whether its a huge expat crowd relaxed in front of the big screen in the UK or a tiny enclave huddled around a laptop in an unpronounceably exotic outpost, hopefully we'll be able to link you up with other footy fans around the world to enjoy the last Saturday in September.


    Well.... umm.... I am now...... this is getting diabolical.... someone mentioned the afl.com.au site streamed the GF LIVE if you had a fast enough connection....?¿?

    ....this is not good....

    Kaching, awesome, just checked and I have ESPN Classic hidden amongst my hundreds of freaking channels.

    I have more channels in Spanish here than I have in Australia in total on Foxtel Platinum, it is ridiculous...
