Japan AFL Grand Final: Tokyo Goannas VS Tokyo Bay Suns


When: 21/11/15: 3:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Where: Yokohama Country & Athletic Club, 11-1 Yugachidai

You’d be forgiven for not knowing that Japan has an Australian Rules Football league, and a competitive one at that.

However, the JAFL (Japan Australian Foot League) has been running in one capacity or another since 1987 in a effort to develop Australia’s national sport (and facilitate cultural exchange) here in Japan.

2015’s seven-team competition has been running since May and culminates this Saturday with a grand final showdown between the league’s top 2 teams, Tokyo Goannas and Tokyo Bay Suns.

Family and friends are all welcome. A sports bar at the ground will have light meals and drinks available and ‘Emmy’s Homemade Popsicle Company’ will be offering free fruity popsicles to spectators.

Match times are as follows:

Exhibition (warm-up) match: 3:40pm – 4:10pm
Grand final (Goannas VS Suns): 4:25pm – 5:45pm
Post-match presentation and drinks: 6:30pm onwards

For those unfamiliar with Australian Rules Football, brush up with this video before the big game:
