AFL Grand Final Week 2022: FOX Footy guide

FOX footprints AFL Grand Finale week with AFL 360 Live, special editions of The jump and Best on Ground, Grand Final Parade, The Longest Kick and more.

The action ramps up on Thursday night when AFL 360 will broadcast live to a studio audience for the first time since the fan-favorite show began 12 years ago.
