Hosted by Bounce’s Jason Dunstall, Andrew Gaze and Ben Dixon, Fox Footy can reveal a star-studded line-up for Fox Footy’s Longest Kick, available on Kayo Sports and Foxtel, this Saturday 30 September.

Headlining the competitors is Hawthorn captain James Sicily, the man behind the “woof” Adam Saad, and Dogs young gun Jamarra Ugle-Hagan.

Not to be discounted Essendon speedster Mason Redman, Melbourne premiership player Trent Rivers, four-time premiership superstar Isaac Smith, and Brisbane left-footer Daniel Rich will also form the competition.

After taking home the chocolates in 2017 with a whopping 66.1m bomb, Fox FM’s Brendan Fevola will enter as a wildcard alongside podcaster Daniel Gorringe and Tasmanian Devil Arie Schoenmaker.

A yearlong campaign from social media sensations Marmalade to participate in the fan-favourite event has paid off, with the two footy fanatics Checkers and Srey putting boot to leather for the ceremonial kick.

Fox Footy’s Longest Kick has become a staple of Grand Final Day, with competitors attempting to boot the Sherrin as far as possible across the Yarra River.

  4. Mason Redman Essendon

It will be a massive Grand Final week on Fox Footy, available on Kayo Sports and Foxtel, kicking off with a bumper AFL 360 Grand Final Special on Thursday night (28 September). Premiership winners Tom Hawkins, Jack Riewoldt, Jordan Lewis and Luke Shuey preview the big game – plus the teams will be in for Saturday’s Grand Final.
