With the NHL draft in the rearview mirror, the AFL is in full swing, with the AFL draft starting this Friday.
For the first time in two decades, there is no need to travel from Sydney to Melbourne to witness the draft in person.
The AFL draft begins on Friday, April 18, 2019, at 7:00pm AEDT.
It is a rare event in Australia that will see the AFL and AFL Cup played in the same venue.
This year the AFL has been awarded the right to host the AFL National Draft from the Adelaide Oval, with Sydney’s Olympic Stadium hosting the first two games.
Both games are televised live on FOX Sports and will be shown live on Fox Footy.
You can watch the games in your own time on Fox Sports or FOX Sport 2, Fox Sports 3 and FOX Sport 4.
As you might expect, there will be plenty of fans to see.
Over 20,000 fans have signed up to watch the AFL’s first draft, and the game has attracted the attention of some of the game’s biggest stars.
“The AFL is the most exciting sport in the world and it has brought so many players and coaches to the national team, including a number of first-class players who have been on the national teams of the past,” AFL CEO Andrew Demetriou said.

The first thing you need to know is that the AFL, like the NRL, will host its first draft for the 2019 season on the same day.
That means you can watch any games that are televised on FOX, ABC, FOX Footy, Fox Soccer, Fox Boxing and Fox Rugby on your television.
If you are a television viewer and are not attending the AFL Draft, you can still watch any matches on FOX Footing or FOX Soccer.
Secondly, you should be aware that the ABC will also televise the first round of the draft on Thursday night.
Thirdly, the two-hour draft on the AFL Network will air on Thursday, March 3, 2019.
So, for those interested in watching the draft, you will have to find a way to get there.
While there is a chance that the games will be televised live in your time zone, it is not a guarantee that you will be able to watch them on your mobile device.
If you can, make sure you use an online streaming service such as YouTube and Netflix, as well as subscribing to AFL Live.
Fingers crossed that there are no problems in the process.
The AFL’s decision to award the right of first refusal means that there will not be any delays in attending the draft.
AFL president Brendon Gale will announce the draft order on Thursday morning.
He will also announce the position of all AFL players at the draft which is due to be held in Adelaide, Melbourne, Adelaide Oval and Sydney.
After the AFL announces the position, the draft will begin.
We will be watching and recording the draft LIVE from Adelaide Oval with the broadcast on FOX FOOTY and FOX Soccer, FOX Soccer 3 and Fox Footing.
