As a betting man, I would say the final will probably be in Toronto>>>CAN'T WAIT!

Yes, but the one thing it conspicuously does not say is the answer to the OP's question - where will the Championship Grand Final/MPG be played?

I already told you..its at the home field of the side with the best record...probably Toronto unless things change dramatically or there is an upset (which is possible).  Was in League Express ages ago...decision has been made.

Not been officially announced. As usual they'll be waiting to see whose in the top5 and book the cheapest option. 

No...the decision was formally made and announced at a meeting a long time ago.

I thought it was agreed earlier in the year as highest placed finisher from the two who make the final?

Yeah I think it’s the highest seeded team will host the final. Can’t see Toronto v Toulouse selling out Headingley unfortunately

Even Leeds struggle to do that.

I would as well but a sold out Lamport would look better than a half empty Headingley

Depending on where it was, I would probably go too. 

The finals day they used to have at the HJ and Headingley was a rare success.

It has always been a neutral venue based on this format. Toronto will be guaranteed a home semi against the lowest ranked team ? Unfair if the final isn't neutral

At the home of the winner of Game D (1st vs winner of 2nd-3rd), giving a fortnight’s notice for the venue so a week longer than was the case for £1m Game.

Toronto finishing top would give them a home semi against the winner of 2nd vs 3rd with the winner straight through to the final. The lowest ranked teams play each other for the right to go to the loser of 2nd vs 3rd.

This would be the best way to do it with this playoff format, IMHO.

Still not seen it anywhere official, and KMan reckons it's hosted by the finalist who finished higher in the league

Which if Toronto lost game D would mean the venue not being decided until the week before

Hey Gubrats; What do you think of Argyles punishment for the comment?
