No twilight AFL grand final

The AFL has resisted temptation and announced the grand final will stay in its traditional 2:30PM EST time slot.

Thursdays AFL commission meeting sounded the end of the rumours that the competition would trial a twilight fixture in 2019. 

Chairman Richard Goyder and CEO Gill McLachlan had voiced support for a change in recent weeks.

No AFL/VFL decider has ever started after 3PM.
