The biggest day on the AFL calendar is upon us, and if you weren’t among the diehard footy fans lucky enough to score themselves a ticket to the game, wipe away those tears.

Bars and pubs across Perth will be pulling out all the stops to celebrate the big day, and no doubt you’re going to want to get amongst the action.

We’ve done the hard yards and rounded up the best places to catch Collingwood and Brisbane Lions play off in the big game. Bounce down is at 12.30pm on Saturday 30 September, don’t be late.

What better way to round out the season than at this old favourite? It will be one hell of a party at The Wembley, with indoor and outdoor bars, footy food and plenty of screens for a good view of the game.
