All AFL Matches listed are available on afl.com.au and are free, no subscription required (for shortwave radio info click here). To get to the selection go to the AFL web site approximately 10 to 30 minutes prior to the match start and look for the links to listen live to the radio feeds. This season you can listen to the prematch commentary if you wish (see this link). You may choose the station you want there. Listening requires Windows Media 9 or later. We will update this each week throughout the season. This information is provided as a service by AFANA. We have no control over the internet feeds whatsoever. If you have difficulty we encourage you to use the technical support links provided at the AFL site first before contacting us. You can also search our site for suggestions on how to make the audio work.

(Update: Due to budget cuts, Radio Australia is dramatically reducing its frequencies and schedule. Coverage for the 2015 season may be limited or non-existent and it may be nearly impossible to hear games via shortwave. We will update this as we get more information.) Radio Australia provides live coverage of three AFL matches which are the same as three of the above listings for the ABC which occur on Saturdays AEST. The frequencies to check are as follows: 15300, 15160, 13630, 12065, 9580, 15415, 9710, 9475, 7410, and 5995 kHz. For an idea of which matches air on Saturdays AEST, consult our TV guide under WatchAFL and any match listed for a time start time between 11 PM Friday US EDT and 6 AM Saturday US EDT may be covered. The ABC also posts the matches to be covered here and here but these pages are not always promptly updated. Please keep in mind that none of the shortwave coverage is aimed at the US or Canada and reception may vary radically from day to day based on the season of the year and solar activity. One week you may hear it very well on a given frequency and the next week not at all. This is not something the ABC, AFANA, or the AFL can easily control.
