The AFL and NRL finals series are here, which means it’s time to start thinking about game-day grub. Forget stadium food, flights and tickets are expensive at finals time. You can have an entire world of footy grub delivered right to your door so there’s no reason to leave the house (or man cave for the lucky few!). We’ll make sure you don’t miss a second of the game.

So, the game’s on the big screen but what’s on your plate? We’ve curated a list of the best bites to join you on game day. And, the best part? It can be enjoyed entirely cutlery-free. We reckon our hands were created just so we could use them to eat.

Meat pies

There’s nothing that really says watching the footy in Australia more than a good old fashioned meat pie. This dish basically brings the stadium to you, leaving you only one concern, how to tomato-sauce the hell out of it.

Chicken wings

As a footy fan we’re sure you’ve seen your fair share of chicken wing tackles. So, with that in mind, why not live it up with some garlic fried chicken wings and sweet chilli sauce? What better way to celebrate footy fever?

Pork roll (banh mi)

This Vietnamese sandwich has completely reinvented the way we sandwich. Chow down on one of these bad boys during the game. Sure, you might get a lap full of crispy bread roll crumbs, but that’s the best part, leftovers for later. And there you have it, turns out you can banh mi love.
