Where to watch the 2017 AFL Grand Final in Saigon

The AFL Grand Final is one of Ho Chi Minh City’s biggest sports viewing days of the year. The combo of a lot of Australian expats and travelers, the friendly time zone for a daytime party session, Saigon’s status as a hotspot for AFL in Asia, and the long running established traditional parties in the city mean Saigon is the place to at the business end of any AFL season. The 2017 AFL Grand Final in Saigon is going to be no different.

Here’s our summary of where you can catch the big game and enjoy some entertainment:

The Vietnam Swans Official 2017 Grand Final Party

The Swans are not just an institution in Vietnam but have gone viral in the AFL heartlands achieving solid media coverage and even airtime on an AFL Club banner in the past 12 months (albeit predominately due to a fun loving 2016 premiership star).

2017 and the Swans are ramping up their Saigon Grand Final Party (they also hold events in Hanoi, Hoi An, Vung Tau) with a new venue in the heart of Saigon’s busiest party area the event should attract a vibrant mix of the active Australian footy community, other expats, travelers and likely a solid Vietnamese contingent keen to broaden their sporting horizons. At 1m VND per ticket the day is pure value too with 2 buffet meals and free flow beer and soft drink from 10am-4pm! Checkout the event page for further information.


Phatty’s in District 1

Phatty’s is an Australian Sporting (and social) institution in Ho Chi Minh City and will definitely be pumping this weekend. Not only will they have the game showing throughout the bar and a pumped up crowd but they’re completing the footy experience by offering a FREE pot (of draught beer) and pie to all attendees. Phatty’s is also the traditional home of the Saigon Saints’ Grand Final party after party so you can expect plenty of company to kick on with after the game  if your team gets up!
