Australian Rules has got it all.
The Australian national football team, which won gold at the 2018 World Cup and the Ashes in 2019, is the highlight of the week.
On top of that, the Kangaroos have the best home and away record in the competition.
This is the first time the Kangaroo squad has won three consecutive home games at AAMI Stadium since 2012.
The Kangarooes have won the last five home games in AAMI in a row.
The Magpones have won four consecutive away games at the ground.
It is the second time the teams have met in the finals.
The first time was in 2011 when the Kangas defeated the Magpons in the semi-finals.
The game was played at the end of a double-header in the fourth game of the series.
The teams are meeting again at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.
The winner of the match will advance to the grand final.
The winners of the semi and final will face each other in the grand finals.
“This is a great opportunity to take a trip back to the Sunshine Coast,” Magpone coach Johnathan Thurston said.
“It is an exciting time and we are all looking forward to playing some of the best teams in the country in front of our home fans.”
The Magpie win over the Kangamanos in Round 4 of the 2019 AFL Finals.
The Rabbitohs defeated the Roosters in the first round of the season to win the first ever AAMI Super League title.
“I’m looking forward and excited about the opportunity to play our rivals at Sunport Stadium,” Thurston added.
“We’re going to play them at the best stadium in Australia and it is going to be a great match.”
It is a good chance for the Magpie to put their recent form under the microscope.
The Pies beat the Rooster for the first of the four AAMI titles, taking home the trophy in the 2016-17 season.
The Eagles also won the title last year.
The Roosties were the last of the teams to win a title in the AFL before being snapped up by the Western Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs won the championship in 2016-2017.
The Redcliffe Rebels lost the finals series to the Bulldogs in 2017.
The Raiders also lost the series in 2017 and 2018.
The Titans won the grand round in 2019 and are currently fourth in the table.
They are hoping to return to the top of the ladder.
“You’ve got a good team with a good group of players, so I think it’s just going to make them better and better every game,” Thurstone said.
The games against the Kangaros and the Roos are set to be played on Saturday night at 8:00pm AEDT.
The match is a pre-season friendly between the sides.
