St Kilda will remain in Queensland for its elimination final against the Western Bulldogs, with the twilight fixture at the Gabba set for Saturday 3 October at 4:40pm.

The Saints retained sixth position on the ladder following Monday's result between Port Adelaide and Collingwood, earning the right to submit a preference for where the blockbuster would be held.

Despite discussion about a possible Adelaide Oval clash to accommodate for a potential Saturday night fixture between Brisbane and Richmond at the Gabba, the Noosa-based Saints will now stay up north heading into its first finals series in nine years.

CEO Matt Finnis said the club welcomed the decision to play the elimination final at the Gabba.

"We have played a lot footy at the Gabba this season and, given where we are currently based in Noosa, it was certainly our preference," he said.

"Saying that, we were prepared to play wherever the game was fixtured and I know internally with the discussions I have had with players and coaches, that was certainly the mindset of the group. 

"Our Queensland members have been in full voice all year and were particularly vocal during Friday night's win over the Giants.

"They will be really pleased to see the game scheduled at the Gabba and I know they will represent our members all over Australia well on Saturday evening." 

The match will be broadcast on both Channel 7 and Fox Footy.

A win against the Bulldogs would see the Saints advance to a semi-final between either the Lions or Tigers.
