The grand final has traditionally been played at 2.30pm on Saturday, however the game’s administrators are aware of the potential increased sponsorship dollars to be earned from an early evening ball-up.

"There are still traditionalists that would always like to see the game stay the same but there are an increasing number of people who can see the opportunity in looking at a twilight grand final," McLachlan said on Thursday.

"The commission have (asked) management to come back with them with a recommendation.”

McLachlan said the timeslot would be confirmed later this month.

"I said that it would be prior to the start of the season, but whether it will be a week later or not, there needs to be a level of certainty and we'll deal with that in the next week or so,’ he said.

"I feel confident with where we go."
