All AFL matches listed are available on afl.com.au 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 and Apple devices. If you want direct links to the feeds and avoid the AFL web site, see below the weekly listing for the 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 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. (For details on the end of shortwave radio coverage see further down or click here to go directly)
Internet Radio Schedule for afl.com.au
2020 AFL and AFLW
(Update 3/24/20: AFL season suspended. This page will be updated again when play and radio coverage resume.)
(Not all radio feeds may be available at the AFL website. AFL smartphone apps also carry all matches unless otherwise noted. )
One of our staff keeps a Google doc with announcers on radio feeds.
The links below are intended to help those who cannot access the AFL site directly or prefer not to. We have the direct link listed and a link to our own player. These have been recently tested. 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, smartphones, and some other devices, can handle these stream addresses. Internet radios and any computer program which let 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 in the add stream feature of their "My favorites" area. For some browsers you will need to install "MSE Extensions" or an external application such as VLC. Additionally, as noted above, all broadcasts can be accessed via the AFL web site at match time and via the AFL smartphone apps. (The format changed again in 2019. We have provided our own embedded player to handle them and those are listed below. We will also update this page with any changes as the 2019 and 2020 seasons progress.- Ed.)

Update: ABC management decided that shortwave was outdated technology.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