The third season of the NAB AFL Women’s League explodes into action on February 2nd and using the information in this guide you will be able to watch every home-and-away match, as well as the Grand Final LIVE.
The 2019 edition of the AFLW will see the addition of two new teams, the AFLW Geelong Cats and North Melbourne Kangaroos. The ten-team competition will this year be split into two conferences, with each team playing four matches against their conference rivals and three cross-conference fixtures. In total, 35-matches will be staged over seven weeks, with Collingwood and Geelong kicking off the action on Saturday, 2 February 2019, at GMHBA Stadium in Victoria. The Women’s AFL season will conclude with the Grand Final on Saturday, 30 March, when the top two teams play for the third-ever AFLW championship.
The ten teams to compete in the NAB AFL Women’s League are Collingwood, Carlton, Adelaide, Greater Western Sydney, Western Bulldogs, Fremantle, Melbourne, Geelong, North Melbourne and Brisbane Lions. Unlike the inaugural season, there will be no double-headers with the Men’s JLT Community series pre-season fixtures, and this time out Adelaide, Fremantle, Greater Western Sydney and Melbourne will each play four games at their home stadiums. Last season the Western Bulldogs took the minor premiership and are the reigning Grand Final champions, but as you tune in to see if they can defend their title, don’t look for every match of the Womens AFL free to air in Australia.
How to Stream the AFLW Free
The free-to-air AFLW 2019 broadcaster will once again be Channel Seven, and as shown in the schedule below, the network will air two games nationally per week LIVE and Free, plus all the non-Victorian clubs’ matches into their respective local markets.
