WHICH TEAMS WILL PLAY IN THE 2022 AFL GRAND FINAL?
Geelong will face Sydney in the 2022 AFL Grand Final.
For the first time since 2017, both qualifying final winners claimed victory in their home preliminary finals, with the Cats defeating Brisbane and the Swans defeating Collingwood.
And even though the Cats and Swans were original VFL clubs dating back to 1897, this will be their first ever meeting in a Grand Final.
The Cats are trying to win their first AFL premiership since 2011, having lost the 2020 Grand Final since then.
The Swans are trying to win their first flag since 2012, having lost the 2014 and 2016 Grand Finals since then.
