The AFL has announced tentative plans to Move the Grand Final from the last Saturday in September.

It gives the reasons that with two new teams joining the competition in 2011 will require the fixture to be extended .

More matches will need to be played . The number of finals series of matches will be greater .The length of the finals series will be longer .

It will seemingly be impossible for all the finals to be played throughout September . Traditionally the final series has culminated with the Grand Final being played on the last Saturday in September .

Fans and historians of the Game will be surprised if this monumental change occurs to the current AFL fixture .

Time will tell if it occurs .Fans everywhere will still come out to support their teams in their football jumper , jersey , guernsey .

Will the Grand Final still be played on the historical last saturday in september ? Will it be played on the first or second saturday in October ?
