Q: "Grand finals" Could you explain this ?
A: 1. I believe the reason why people don’t just say “the grand final” is that grand finals just rolls off the tongue a lot more naturally. I actually searched up some stuff about it and I found that when people talked about just one final they would call it grand final but when they talked about multiple they called it grand finals.

2. Adding an s behind grand final does not replace the “the.” You would have to say something like:
I enjoy watching the grand finals every year.

This is a very interesting and good question that I’m actually still not sure about, so I’m happy to help.
