With a 40sq metre screen (yep, seriously) beaming out the action, you’ll soon forget you’re 10,500 miles away from Melbourne when you’re watching at the Clapham Grand. It’s the largest screen in the UK, and comes complemented by six other massive plasma TVs. Join Clapham’s sizable Aussie contingent and savour a raucous big game atmosphere.
Another of London’s leading sports bars will have the Grand Final covered from all angles this year. Spreading out across two floors, you’ll find 10 screens dotted about the venue, with an enormous 15ft cinema screen to cap things off. There’s an international food menu fit for a champion, a global array of craft beers and, in the Lotus Lounge, there’s a fantastic private space for your own intimate Grand Final party.
