On the eve of the 2015 AFL Grand Final, the Marngrook Footy Show will bring some of the biggest names in the competition together with legends of the game, for a special LIVE broadcast from Melbourne’s Forum Theatre.
Joining the panel are fan favourite Adelaide forward Eddie Betts, Richmond star Brandon Ellis, Collingwood’s Darcy Moore, Demon Jack Viney, Western Bulldogs defender Easton Wood, and impressive Giants midfielder Adam Treloar.
Marngrook regulars and stars of the game, Kevin Bartlett, Robert ‘Dipper’ DiPierdomenico, Derek Kickett, and Phil Krakour, will also take to the Forum stage to give their insights and in-depth analysis ahead of the premiership.
Hosts Grant Hansen, Gilbert McAdam, Chris Johnson, Leila Gurruwiwi and Shelley Ware will present the panel-voted and hotly contended 2015 Marngrook Player of the Year Award, given last year to the one and only Buddy Franklin.
Highlights of the special live show will also include the annual Brownlow Medal red carpet feature, the Grand Final parade wrap, as well as team selections and discussion of the biggest news stories from Grand Final week.
Marngrook has a proud history of presenting great live music, showcasing some of the best emerging local talent, alongside music legends. The Grand Final show will feature performances from Donna Fisk and Michael Cristiano, who will perform their popular footy anthem ‘Rockin Footy’, before Christine Anu gets the party started, and Australian rock legends Chocolate Starfish bring the show to a close.
The Marngrook Footy Show celebrates and embraces the contribution made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to Australian Football. Each and every week, this is the heart and soul of the show.
