How to watch Geelong Cats vs Gold Coast Suns AFL live and free

Posted: 4 July 2020 10:38 am

The Cats host surprise packets Gold Coast in an intriguing AFL match-up in Geelong. This is how to watch live.

SUMMARY: Cats vs Suns is exclusive to Fox Footy. If you're an existing Foxtel customer you're all set, otherwise your best option is to watch on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Cats vs Suns is a clash of a Geelong side moving along OK early in the new campaign and a Gold Coast outfit that is easily the biggest surprise of the season to date.

There was no sign of what was to come when the Suns suffered a heavy opening loss to Port Adelaide. Since then, Gold Coast have won three straight games over West Coast, Adelaide and Fremantle to vault to a stunning second on the ladder.

For the sixth-placed Cats, they followed a thrashing of Hawthorn with a narrow upset loss to Carlton and a drab victory over Melbourne. It's fair to say that through four rounds of football, there are still uncertainties about both of these teams. But the young Suns are sure turning some heads.

When is Geelong vs Gold Coast?

The opening bounce is at 4:35pm AEST at GMHBA Stadium in Geelong on Saturday 4 July. You can see our full viewing guide to the 2020 AFL season here.

Who will win Cats vs Suns?

What a difference a few weeks can make. If this match was being played at the start of the AFL resumption, Geelong would be favoured by 10 goals or more. But that is certainly not the case now. Behind the exceptional play of teenaged number one draft pick Matt Rowell, the previously terrible Suns are the feel-good story of 2020.

The Cats will need to be on their guard, but we're still leaning towards Geelong at home by a goal or two.
