AFL televised near the Amari?

I'm guessing that AFL maches are readily televised in a multitude of bars just like Phuket?

If a regular could confirm or deny this and make a recommendation that would be much appreciated. We are a family group - not bogans, have our own teeth - so would be looking for something family friendly on or near the beach !

Thanking you in advance.

Islander Bar would be best bet

Definately go with the Islander.

It is near soi green mango and very close to the Amari.

They have several screens, good picture and sound, cold beer and some of the best thai food On the strip at reasonable prices.

I watched richmond v hawthorn there a few weeks ago [go tigers) and have seen dozens of games there over the last 10 years including the 2004 grand final.

Hi mmij

Agree with others islander is closer to you. But if you out and about there are plenty of Aussie bars on the main chaweng beach road.

Happy holiday :-)

Another vote for the Islander. We watched the drawn 2010 grand final there with our 13 year old daughter and had a great day. Really good atmosphere, food and cold drinks. They even hand out Vegemite toast during the breaks LOL.

For finals I would get there reasonably early though. We arrived about game start time and just found a spot to sit.

Yep another vote for the Islander. Been there a few times now including the 2009 Grand Final and the drawn grand final in 2010 . Heaps of TV's so you get a view of the game wherever you sit. And the vegemite toast is a winner too. Sadly we won't be there this year as we're off to Phuket for a change. Oh and you will love the Amari, been there a couple of times too and although its a little walk into the main hub of the town its really nice. Just watch out for the lady boys accosting you on the walk home if you've had too many drinks at Henry Africas!
