Australian Victoria AFL Public Holiday Here To Stay

The current Government of Australia's State of Victoria has committed to keeping the still controversial "Friday before the AFL Grand Final" annual non-working public holiday of Australia's State of Victoria, and Opposition Leader, Matthew Guy, has also stated that a Coalition government would keep it ("We didn’t originally support it but we accept it's now part of the calendar").

Seven years ago (17-Jul-2011), Daniel Andrews, who was then leader of the opposition of Australia's State of Victoria had announced that he would support the push for an extra public holiday to celebrate AFL Grand Final week, if he became premier, a promise he kept as the Premier-elect of the State Government of Australia's State of Victoria, shortly after his election (01-Dec-2014 and 08-Jul-2015), by the publication of the declaration this new non-working public holiday in Australia's State of Victoria in the Government Gazette (as opposed to a possibly lengthy parliamentary debate).

The amended the list of official non-working public holidays in Australia's State of Victoria for the period of 2018, was initially released by the State Government of Australia's State of Victoria (19-Feb-2017), with "Date TBC" for the 2018 AFL Grand Finale public holiday, and the official date of the "Friday before the AFL Grand Final" annual non-working public holiday in Australia's State of Victoria was announced by the State Government of Australia's State of Victoria, late last spring (17-Jun-2017).

Though the list of official non-working public holidays in Australia's State of Victoria for the period of 2019, was released by the State Government of Australia's State of Victoria, earlier this year (19-Feb-2017), the date of the "Friday before the AFL Grand Final" annual non-working public holiday in Australia's State of Victoria, was left as "Date TBC".
