That means the AFLW grand final will be played at 2pm in the home state of the highest-ranked preliminary final winner.
It will be played at the MCG, Adelaide Oval or the Gabba.
Minor premiers Adelaide will host Melbourne, with Demons star Daisy Pearce in a race to be fit because of a knee injury, in a preliminary final at 2.10pm (AEST) on Saturday at Adelaide Oval.
The Brisbane Lions will play Collingwood in the other final, at the Gabba at 4.10pm on Saturday, to determine the second team to progress to the AFLW grand final.
