AFLW 'Conference' Fixture for 2019

Recommended Posts

In a nutshell.  Five teams per 'Conference'.  Then:

Then the top two teams in each conference host the second-placed sides in the other conference, with the winners playing off in the Grand Final.

Not ideal as each team does not play all other teams at least once.  But I think it is a big improvement of the initial proposal so expertly critiqued as 'gimmicky', by Daisy.

And having a 'Finals Series' is far better than the sudden death we have now with the two top teams playing off in the GF.

THE 2019 NAB AFL Women's season will be played using a conference system, with the 10 teams divided into two groups of five.

Each team will play seven home and away games, with the season starting on the first weekend of February. The season will also feature two weeks of finals, with the Grand Final to be held on the last weekend of March, coinciding with round two of the AFL season.

Teams will play the four other teams in their own conference, plus three teams from the other conference in a ‘weighted’ arrangement.

The format will allow for one of the three so-called ‘crossover’ games to be based on a rivalry.

What a farce this league is becoming. The AFL has completely mismanaged it right from the ridiculous lockout in the first game. They don’t understand the aflw’s market (and that it is quite different to the afl’s)

And what's their plan for 2019? 2020? I guess they'll probably make that up as they go along as well.
