The two local governments have a direct involvement in preparations for the big match, with staff busy behind-the-scenes ensuring the day goes smoothly for local businesses and communities planning and preparing a number of side events. 

Teams at both local governments are putting traffic management measures in place, ensuring that streets stay clean and tidy despite increased foot traffic and putting local rangers on standby. Support is also being provided to local businesses to ensure that trade is optimised. 

Teams across the City of Perth are working on events and activations including Footy Place, People's Parade on Grand Final eve, Twilight Hawkers Market, Northbridge Piazza Live Site and Forrest Place Live Site. 

The City has also put up 255 banners across the City's streets, and lighting up owned assets in AFL colours — including Council House and Trafalgar Bridge.

As well as hosting the AFL Grand Final at Optus Stadium, the Town of Victoria Park is holding special Grand Final events on the day.
