Toyota AFL Premiership Cup Tour
The Toyota AFL Premiership Cup Tour gives footy fans around the Sunshine State a chance to get close to the most important piece of silverware in Australian sport.
The schedule will showcase some of Queensland's best local hot-spots and footy communities, starting in Cairns and stopping in Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Toowoomba, and the Gold Coast, before being hand-delivered onto the Gabba on Saturday, October 24 for the 2020 Toyota AFL Grand Final.
The Toyota AFL Premiership Cup Tour will commence Thursday 8 October, with the cup flying to Cairns with thanks to Virgin Australia. The cup will be escorted by Brisbane Legend, and three-time premiership player Simon Black, who is the official Premiership Cup Ambassador for 2020.
Once in Cairns, the Premiership Cup will be loaded onto a Toyota HiLux to commence its journey around the state by road.
The tour will wrap on the Gold Coast Saturday 17 October, leading into the 2020 Toyota AFL Grand Final week celebrations.
