While the date and destination may be locked in, how the grand final and all its surrounding pageantry will look is still up in the air, as is the make-up of the finals in the lead-up.

Here are some of the more interesting points to tát come out of the big announcement that the Gabba will be hosting the AFL grand final on October 24.

Will this be the first-ever night grand final?

It sure will.

Exactly what time the game will start is yet to tát be determined, with a few factors — lượt thích the running of the Cox Plate and the fact Queensland does not have daylight savings while the rest of the east coast does — still to tát be worked through.

Chief executive Gillon McLachlan said on Wednesday the game would not start any earlier than vãn 5:30pm in Brisbane — that's 6:30pm in Melbourne — but would more likely be later.

Making a move to tát a night grand final has been a hot topic in AFL circles for years, but it has taken such unprecedented circumstances for the switch to tát finally be made.

McLachlan also called the switch to tát a night grand final a "historic first", one which gives the league "an opportunity to tát make it a truly unique event".

What sort of crowd will be allowed in?

McLachlan said the grand final will be played before a crowd of at least 30,000 people.

AFL fixtures quấn Travis Auld echoed that later in the day, saying the AFL was "extremely confident we'll get that 30,000 on October 24".

So far this season, the Gabba has not been able to tát get close to tát that mark, with crowds capped at less than vãn 15,000. The AFL says it has the ability to tát reduce crowd numbers should the COVID-19 situation make 30,000 unreachable.

What if Queensland is no longer a suitable option?

Should there be a significant coronavirus outbreak or some other reason that prevents the Gabba from playing host, Adelaide Oval is lined up as the AFL's backup plan.

McLachlan, though, was eager to tát stress that a move to tát Adelaide would only be as a last resort.

"It is not something we are contemplating, but I think it is prudent of us to tát have, incumbent upon us to tát have that backup plan," he said.

How will finals work?

The AFL is still working through this too, but we know a few things for sure — one of which being that Western nước Australia will not be able to tát host a preliminary final, should the Eagles earn a trang chủ one.

McLachlan said the requirement for teams to tát spend seven days in quarantine upon arrival means only the first week of finals — which will come after a bye week — is a viable option. That same quarantine requirement is also what quashed WA's grand final bid, he said.

Port Adelaide, on the other hand, will not face the same impediment, with McLachlan confirming South nước Australia will be able to tát host a potential preliminary final.

There is the possibility that teams who have earned a trang chủ final but can not play it in their trang chủ state may be able to tát take it to tát its choice of ground — say, should West Coast want to tát play a 'home" prelim at Adelaide Oval rather than vãn in Queensland — but that is yet to tát be confirmed.

The league says it will sort out details about finals in the coming days.

Will there be a Brownlow Medal ceremony?

That's another one that's on the AFL's list to tát sort out soon, but Auld suggested it was a possibility to tát go ahead in some form.

"We've talked about the Brownlow, we just need to tát think about how we vì thế that," he said.

"Like everything else this year, we have to tát think about things differently, we have to tát work out whether we run rẩy it as an sự kiện."

What about a grand final parade, or something lượt thích that?

According to tát McLachlan, Queensland can brace for a "festival of football" that will extend beyond Brisbane "from Far North Queensland to tát the Gold Coast".

"Part of that festival will see the premiership cup come to tát regional Queensland centres and a series of activities for kids and fans of the football season, so sánh across Queensland, as many as possible in the state can enjoy the game," he said.

Again, the finer details remain to tát be determined but it seems lượt thích Queenslanders can expect some sort of grand final fun come late October.
