Update: (5/15/24) We'll update weekly through all of the AFL and AFLW seasons. Thanks to NEMBC for their support again this year. All listeners please check for the links for NEMBC in our Direct Links section where we have a weekly Spanish language report. Los oradores hispanos y los que viven en América Latina deben buscar "NEMBC" en nuestra sección "Direct Links" de esta página. Allí hemos vinculado un informe semanal en español. There is a Telstra/AFL skill in Alexa which also gives you access to game audio. 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 and additional info 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 for the AFL provided links. 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. If the link we list is broken, please send us a message using the contact page on this site. We have 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 the bottom of the page or click here to go directly.)

Internet Radio Schedule for and Australian Stations

AFL Round 19 and Round 20

Not all radio feeds may be available at the AFL website "Match Centre". Feeds may be unavailable at the AFL site or station websites or on station apps during matches, but we will try to have links here. 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 each week with confirmed coverage, until then all schedules are preliminary.

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 AFL feed link, the direct link (where available) listed, and a link to our own player. The feeds often come up 20 to 60 minutes prior to the match. These have been tested recently. Not all might work for every match, and this is beyond our control. Further, many Australian radio stations are now "geo-fencing" their station feeds for marketing and copyright reasons.

The AFL feeds are all HLS based but most of the station links are AAC based. Not all standalone devices, but some recent laptop and desktop browsers, most recent smartphones, and some other devices, can handle HLS stream addresses and almost all browsers, smartphones, internet radios, etc. can handle AAC links. Internet radios and any computer program which lets you enter the URL of the web streams directly AND which understand the HLS stream format can use those links to get to the radio feeds for the AFL. Likewise, you can do this with AAC streams. For example, you can add them to TuneIn using the add stream feature of their "My favorites" area. Additionally, as noted above, all broadcasts can be accessed via the AFL web site at match time and via the AFL smartphone apps.

Technical stuff you may need to know: For some browsers, you will need to install "MSE Extensions" or use an external application such as VLC or an HLS extension (as on most browser versions of Chrome). Most recent versions of JavaScript support HLS and AAC so that you can extend this ability to many browsers and devices with suitable add-ons. (The links are current as of March 2024. We have provided updated addresses with the help of our staff 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.
