TWO lucky fans will get a double dose of sporting greatness after the AFL and NBA joined forces to create the Ultimate Fan Experience ahead of the 2023 Toyota AFL Grand Final.
As part of the competition, two sports fans will win one of two double passes to the Grand Final, and take part in an exclusive meet and greet with seven-time NBA All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge and West Coast's retired three-time All-Australian superstar Nic Naitanui.
