The two elimination finals will be completed Saturday – St Kilda versus Western Bulldogs at the Gabba beginning 4.40pm, followed by West Coast versus Collingwood at Optus Stadium at 6.10pm local time (8.10pm EST).
The loser of Lions-Tigers will play the winner of Saints-Dogs. The loser of Power-Cats will play the winner of Eagles-Pies.
There had been a behind-scenes push to play the St Kilda-Western Bulldogs final in Adelaide, but the Saints were able to negotiate a desired outcome of the Gabba being the venue.
Collingwood will need to quarantine for seven days in Perth in order to play its final, and will stay in south-east Queensland until Friday this week.
