Queensland’s best female footballers will battle it out for premiership honours in a grand final triple header at Leyshon Park Yeronga, today Sunday August 27.
Broadbeach and Kedron open the day in the QWFA Division 2 decider at 10:45am, Bond University take on Yeronga-South Brisbane in QWFA Division 1 at 1:00pm and Coorparoo face Yeronga-South Brisbane in the Bond University QWAFL at 3:15pm.
The Bond University QWAFL Grand Final will be a treat for AFLW fans, with up to ten members of the 2017 Brisbane Lions team – including six All-Australians – tipped to play.
Coorparoo Kings boast current Lions Captain Emma Zielke, Brittany Gibson, Jessica Wuetschner, Ally Anderson and Kate Deegan, while the Yeronga-South Brisbane Devils line-up includes Sam Virgo, Emily Bates, Sabrina Frederick-Traub, Kate McCarthy and Jade Ransfield.
AFL Queensland State Football Operations Manager, Barry Gibson, said the first all-women’s grand final day was an historic occasion.
“The growth and standing of women’s footy has commanded an occasion where our female participants are the showpiece,” said Mr. Gibson.
“We are extremely fortunate to have so many of our Lions AFLW players in action in the Bond University QWAFL game.”
