Braith Anasta among A-Listers at AFL Grand Final

More than 100,00 football fans crammed into Melbourne’s MCG for the AFL Grand Final on Saturday.

So it was no surprise a number of very famous faces appeared as spectators in the crowd.

Braith Anasta, Delta Goodrem and Nicky Whelan were among the stars who turned out to watch the sporting spectacular from the stands.

Celebrity spectators! A number of stars, including Braith Anasta and his Fox Sports co-stars, were among the famous faces at the MCG for the AFL Grand Final on Saturday 

Sydney-based Braith, 35, appeared to make a special trip to the southern city for the event, taking to Instagram to share a series of snaps from his seat.

The former NRL star appeared to be without his pregnant partner Rachael Lee, as he posted a picture with fellow Fox Sports presenters Yvonne Sampson, Jess Yates and Michael Ennis.

The trip may have been a work perk for the foursome, who regularly appear on Fox League.

Fellow Sydney-sider Delta Goodrem also made the trip to the MCG, as did one-time Bachelorette winner Sasha Mielczarek who uploaded video footage from the stands.

The ex of Sam Frost appeared to be in the mood to celebrate, having previously posted a photo of a boozy breakfast he was enjoying.

And stunning model Nicky Whelan also made sure to stop by at the event whilst spending time back home in Australia.

The LA-based beauty posted a picture with pals as she waited for kick off.

Local celebrities also were out in force, with WAG Bec Judd bringing along a gal pal to cheer on underdogs the Richmond Tigers in their clash against favourites Adelaide Crows.

Bec’s decision not to attend with husband Chris Judd was surprising, given he is former AFL legend. 

Earlier in the day, beautiful Bec   took to Instagram to share a snap of her beauty regime as she prepared to hit the stadium.

Meanwhile, it appeared Bachelor runner-up Elise Stacy would also be taking a seat at the stadium to watch the match live.

The beauty took to social media showing her support for the Adelaide Crows, wearing a team scarf as she touched down in Melbourne.

It’s unclear whether she will meet up with fellow Bachelor reject Florence Alexandra Sophia, who was barracking for rival team Richmond Tigers.

‘I don’t know s**t about AFL, besides the names of some fine as players and their Instagram accounts, but all the best today RichmondFC’ the Dutch native wrote on Instagram.
