Ultimate glory will be awarded to the champion of the AFL’s most unpredictable and difficult season in decades as Richmond faces Geelong in the 2020 Grand Final.

Richmond (14-5-1, third on the ladder) is trying to win its third premiership in four seasons, something only eight teams in VFL-AFL history have ever done, and become a dynasty.

Geelong (14-6, fourth on the ladder) is back in the flag decider for the first time since 2011, when coach Chris Scott - in his first year in charge - led this team to its third flag in five years.

This is the first night Grand Final in VFL-AFL history (starting at 7:30pm AEDT), and is being played at the Gabba in Brisbane.

It’s the first time since 1991 the game is not being played at the MCG, and just the second time since World War II.

Richmond’s Trent Cotchin can tonight become just the eighth man in VFL-AFL history to be a triple premiership captain, joining Luke Hodge (Hawthorn), Michael Voss (Brisbane), John Nicholls (Carlton), Allan La Fontaine (Melbourne), Dick Reynolds (Essendon, four-time), Michael Tuck (Hawthorn, four-time) and Syd Coventry (Collingwood, four-time).

A Geelong win would send Gary Ablett out on the ultimate high note, as tonight will be his 357th and final AFL match before retiring.

The showdown could be a wet one with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting a 70 per cent chance of showers in Brisbane during the afternoon and evening.
