The AFL has revealed this year's Premiership Cup Ambassador, as well as the presenters of the 2023 Norm Smith Medal and 2023 Jock McHale Medal, ahead of this month's season decider.

2012 Sydney premiership player Josh P. Kennedy will succeed Richmond hero Bachar Houli in bringing the premiership cup out onto the MCG on grand final day after touring the much-desired trophy in the lead-up to the game.

Kennedy played in three grand finals (2012, 2014 and 2016) and would poll eight Norm Smith Medal votes in his most recent appearance on the big stage to finish second behind Bulldog Jason Johannisen in the defeat.

2005 Norm Smith Medal winner Chris Judd will award this year's recipient with the honour of best afield in the grand final, with the West Coast and Carlton great set to return to the dais this September.

Judd, who became the fourth and most recent player to win the Norm Smith Medal in a losing side, played in 17 finals across his 279-game career - 11 with West Coast and six with Carlton.

Lastly, two-time Essendon premiership player and dual Geelong premiership coach Mark Thompson will award the coach of the winning side with the Jock McHale Medal.

Thompson was a recipient of the award in 2007 and 2009 with the Cats - extending his success away from the field after leading Essendon to the 1993 flag as the club's captain.

The former Geelong and Essendon coach played 202 games in the red sash before stepping into the coaches' box, where he amassed 283 career matches in the hot seat - 260 with the Cats and 23 with Essendon in a one-season stint in 2014.

The 2023 AFL Grand Final is scheduled for Saturday, September 30, and will commence at 2:30pm (AEST).

The two grand finalists will nominate a club icon to present the premiership cup to the captain and coach in the chance they are victorious on the day.
