All AFL Matches listed are available on and are free, no subscription required (for details on the end of shortwave radio coverage see further down or click here to go directly). 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. The feeds are also available on the AFL app for Android and Apple devices. If you want direct links to the feeds and avoid the AFL web site, see below the weekly listing. This season you can listen to the pre-match commentary if you wish. You may choose the station you want there.  Listening requires Adobe Flash. 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. We have direct links below the listing which allow you to bypass the AFL site in some circumstances.

The links below are routed through a special server and intended to help those who cannot access the AFL site directly or prefer not to. These have been recently tested. Not all might work for every match and this is beyond our control. The feeds are all Flash based. Not all standalone devices, but most laptops, desktops, and some other devices, can handle Flash stream addresses. Internet radios, smartphones, and any computer program which let you enter the URL of the web streams directly AND which understands the RTMP Flash stream format, can use the following links to get to the radio feeds for the AFL. For some RTMP friendly devices you will only need the portion after "swf?src=". Additionally, as noted above, all broadcasts can be accessed via the AFL web site at match time and via the AFL smartphone apps. (Unfortunately, it appears the station's direct streams continue to be blocked during matches in 2018 and you will need to use our updated links to get to the streams without using the AFL web site... We will update this page with any changes as the 2018 season progresses.- Ed.)

Shortwave Coverage

Update: ABC management decided that shortwave was outdated technology. As a result, Radio Australia has ceased broadcasting on shortwave as 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 some day return.

You're welcome. The AFL probably won't let them as they have to send the listeners through the AFL web site as a condition of getting a license to broadcast the game.We have no such restriction.
