2016 Grand Final Live on Fox Soccer Plus, TSN2, and WatchAFL in North America

Fans should carefully note the start and end times of Grand Final coverage in the USA and Canada. We have been advised by Fox Sports that due to music rights guarantees requested by the host broadcaster Seven Network, many broadcasters including Fox Soccer Plus will be unable to show anything except the Grand Final game itself. This will mean coverage will be limited to a window between 12:24 AM and approximately 3:30 AM EDT in the US. Coverage will end shortly after the match ends. Fox has indicated they expect to be able to air the medal ceremony.  Fox Soccer Plus (FSP) in the USA and TSN2 in Canada will carry the Grand Final between Sydney and Western Bulldogs LIVE on Friday night / Saturday morning, September 30th / October 1st.  US coverage on FSP will begin at 12:24 AM EDT Saturday. Set your DVR accordingly by adding extra time before and after so you don't miss any of the medal ceremony or extra time if it occurs! Coverage will continue until approximately 3:30 AM EDT Saturday concluding after the medal ceremony. No other pre- or post-match coverage will be provided. Canadian coverage on TSN2 will begin at 10:30 PM EDT Friday and run to 4:00 AM Saturday. If you have no access to any of the preceding options, the game will be live via the internet on WatchAFL (payment required, US$22) and you can sign up at this link. WatchAFL coverage will begin at 11:30 PM EDT. Fans should check our TV Schedule page for full TV listings including any repeats and our TV Info page for more information on FSP, WatchAFL, and TSN2. For those looking for parties, see our listings on our Grand Final Party page. (Note:  the only live coverage in North America is via these outlets and they are available nationally via cable and satellite services -- see our TV Info page. Asking us if there are others will not get you a different answer because there isn't one.)

Adelaide Coach Murdered in Domestic Dispute

by Johnson Leung reporting for AFANA in Melbourne assisted by AFANA staff in Australia, Canada, and the USA

The Aussie Rules community is mourning the tragic death of Adelaide coach Phil Walsh at just 55. Police and ambulance crews were sent to Walsh's home at Somerton Park, a seaside suburb 7 mi southwest of Adelaide city center, just after 2 AM Friday Adelaide time (12.30 PM Thursday US EDT) following reports of family dispute. They found Walsh with multiple stab wounds to his body. Paramedics treated him on the scene, but he could not be revived. Walsh's wife of 28 years, Meredith, was admitted to Flinders Medical Center with leg wounds and discharged the following day.

Walsh's son Cy, 26, was arrested by police a short time later outside a school friend's house at Glenelg East (1 mi north from Somerton Park), where he had been regularly staying. Cy was sent to the same hospital for psychiatric assessment and was charged with murder at a bedside hearing in Friday afternoon. He has since been moved to James Nash House, a secure mental health facility, and will remain in custody until a court hearing on September 15. We have details of the impact to US TV coverage toward the end of this article.

Fox and TSN Extend Contract to 2016 and New TV Page Debuts

AFANA has confirmed that Fox Sports and TSN have both agreed to contract extensions that insure the AFL coverage will remain on those networks through the end of the 2016 season. The previous contact was set to expire after the coming 2014 AFL season. This means that coverage will remain similar this year to that of last season. We do not yet know when coverage will begin. It will start no later than Round 1 in mid-March, however some coverage of the pre-season NAB Challenge series is possible. Once we have those details, we will update this website. For US viewers the primary coverage will remain on Fox Soccer Plus and for Canadian viewers on TSN2. We've are still unsure how much coverage to expect on Fox Sports 2 however we anticipate some coverage there. The amount of that coverage may vary according to the other sports available to FS2 at any given time. (Update 2/25/14: Fox has confirmed we can expect 2 games per week on FS2, usually on delay. TSN in Canada has confirmed we can expect 1 live and 1 delayed game per week in 2014.)

We are also thrilled to tell fans of the most significant change to way we present TV schedules to you since 2006. Our TV schedule system is finally fully data base driven and maintained. This allows us to bring you capabilities we have been unable to with the old page. The web address of the schedules page has not changed so all of your saved links will still work. What you will see now is all of the schedule information in one display and presorted by network. Want it sorted differently?
