(Update: (12/7/23) The footy season has concluded for 2023. We'll update this page in Feb. 2024 when we know more about the 2024 radio coverage. Thanks to NEMBC for their support this year. (3/25/23) Special thanks to the NEMBC for their support for broadcasts in español and all listeners please check for the links for NEMBC in our Direct Links section. We will update this page each week this season. Los hablantes de español y los que viven en América Latina deben buscar "NEMBC" en nuestra sección "Direct Links" en esta página. (10/5/22): Gracias a las buenas personas de NEMBC, tenemos un informe semanal en español vinculado a continuación. Thanks to the fine people at NEMBC we have a weekly Spanish language report linked below. (3/26/22): There is a Telstra/AFL skill in Alexa which also gives you access to game audio. Thanks to staff member Nick for noting this. 
We are now making this weekly radio station information available via Google Calendar and highly recommend that - links to it are below just above the weekly station list. The Google calendar version also has commentators for each match when available. Let us know if you notice any broken links.)

All AFL and AFLW matches listed are available on and are free, no subscription required. 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 the "Match Centre" where you will find a link to "listen live" to the radio feeds. The feeds are also available on the AFL app for Android, Apple, and Alexa devices. If you want direct links to the feeds and avoid the AFL web site, see below the weekly listing for our own AFANA player links. You may choose the station you want there. Listening requires an HLS compatible browser or standalone software. We will update this each week throughout the season. This information is provided as a service by AFANA. We have no control over the source internet feeds whatsoever. If you have difficulty, we encourage you to try Match Centre, then try our player, and then use the technical support links provided at the AFL site, and if nothing still works, contact us. We have direct links below the weekly listing which you can use to bypass the AFL site with your own audio player in most circumstances. (For details on the end of shortwave radio coverage see further down or click here to go directly.)

Internet Radio Schedule for

AFL Round 0

(Not all radio feeds may be available at the AFL website "Match Centre". Feeds are often unavailable at station websites or on station apps during matches. AFL owned smartphone apps typically carry all matches unless otherwise noted. The match info below is available via Google Calendar -- an ICS version for Outlook / Android and iCal version for Apple. This page is typically updated on Thursday.)

Direct Links to Game Feeds

The links below are intended to help those who cannot access the AFL/AFLW website/apps directly or prefer not to. We have the direct link listed and a link to our own player. These have been tested recently. Not all might work for every match, and this is beyond our control. The feeds are all HLS based. Not all standalone devices, but some recent laptop and desktop browsers, most recent smartphones, and some other devices, can handle these stream addresses. Internet radios and any computer program which lets you enter the URL of the web streams directly AND which understands the HLS stream format can use the following links to get to the radio feeds for the AFL. For example, you can add them to TuneIn using the add stream feature of their "My favorites" area. For some browsers, you will need to install "MSE Extensions" or use an external application such as VLC or an HLS extension (as on some versions of Chrome). Additionally, as noted above, all broadcasts can be accessed via the AFL web site at match time and via the AFL smartphone apps. (The links changed again in 2021. We have provided updated addresses with the help of a fan and have updated our own embedded player to handle them. We will further update this page if necessary. - Ed.)

Shortwave Coverage

ABC management decided that shortwave was outdated technology. As a result, Radio Australia ceased broadcasting on shortwave as of Jan. 31, 2017. Therefore, AFL coverage is no longer available on shortwave radio to audiences anywhere. AFANA joins footy fans across the world in mourning the loss of RA and the great resource it provided for nearly 8 decades. Footy was just a minor service but in the days before high-speed internet a very critical one. For fans in the Pacific region, it was still important. We can only hope it may return someday.
