Australian Football League

Over the next century, a series of expansions, a relocation, a merger and a club withdrawal saw the leagues teams expand to the 18 teams there are today. In , the national nature of the competition resulted in the name change to the Australian Football League. Tasmania , Australian Capital Territory , and Northern Territory are the only states or mainland territories not to have AFL clubs although games are regularly played in each of those areas.

The current 18 teams are based across 5 states of Australia. The majority 10 still remain in Victoria, including nine teams located in the Melbourne metropolitan area. It last competed in and withdrew because, as a strictly amateur club, it became unable to remain competitive in a time when player payments were becoming common; [23] [24] the club still competes to this day in the Victorian Amateur Football Association VAFA.

However, after a coming out of financial administration in , Fitzroy resumed its playing operations in and currently competes in the VAFA. Below are the venues used during the AFL season. Prior to the expansion of the competition, most grounds were located in suburban Melbourne, with Princes Park , Victoria Park , the Junction Oval , Waverley Park , and the Lake Oval each having hosted over games.

AFL players are drawn from a number of sources; however, most players enter the league through the AFL draft , held at the end of each season. A small number of players have converted from other sports, or been recruited internationally. Prior to the nationalisation of the competition, a zoning system was in place. At the end of the season, the best 22 players and coach from across the competition are selected in the All-Australian team.

The AFL has tight controls over the player lists of each club. Currently, apart from the recently added expansion clubs who have some additional players, each team can have a senior list of 38 to 40 players plus 4 to 6 rookie players , to a total of 44 players [32] following a reduction by two of the number of rookies in and up to three development rookies international, alternate talent or New South Wales scholarship players.

A mid-year draft was conducted between and The draft order is based on reverse-finishing position from the previous year, but selections can be traded. As part of the AFL's enhanced equalisation policies, in the league announced an increase of the TPP for the and seasons. Both the salary cap and salary floor has increased substantially since the competition was rebranded as the AFL in Salaries of draft selections are fixed for two years.

The breaches of the salary cap and salary floor regulations outlined by the AFL are: The most significant breach of the salary cap was that of the Carlton Football Club in the early s.

There were players on AFL club senior, veteran, rookie and international lists in , including players from every state and mainland territory of Australia. There were 12 players recruited from outside Australia on AFL lists in , including 10 from Ireland, all converts from Gaelic football drafted as part of the Irish Experiment , and one each from the United States and Canada.

There were also another five overseas-born players who emigrated to Australia at an early age on AFL lists. An international rookie list and international scholarship list were introduced in The international rookie list includes up to two players between the ages of 15 and 23 who are not Australian citizens.

These players may remain on this list for up to three years before they must be transferred to the senior or rookie list. For the first year, payments made to international-rookie-listed players fall outside the salary cap. The international scholarship list gives AFL clubs the option of recruiting up to eight players from outside Australia other than Ireland.

Irish players are required to either be placed on clubs' senior or rookie lists. Of the multicultural players, more than half have one parent from Anglophone countries, mainly the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand. From until , the AFL ran a pre-season competition that finished prior to the commencement of the premiership season, which served as both warm-up matches for the season and as a stand-alone competition.

It was mostly contested as a four-week knock out tournament , but the format changed after the expansion of the league beyond sixteen clubs in The competition has frequently been used to trial rule changes. In , the competition format was abandoned, and practice matches are now played under the sponsored name JLT Community Series.

This consists of all 18 clubs playing three matches each, which are played on some weekdays and weekends, throughout February and early March.

The game is played on soccer -sized pitches and features seven players a side and three interchange players , two ten-minute halves and other rules designed to speed up the game. The AFL home-and-away season at present lasts for 23 rounds, starting in late March and ending in early September. As of the AFL season , each team plays 22 matches, with one bye. Teams receive four premiership points for a win and two premiership points for a draw.

Ladder finishing positions are based on the number of premiership points won, and "percentage" calculated as the ratio of points scored to points conceded throughout the season is used as a tie-breaker when teams finish with equal premiership points.

At the end of the home-and-away season, the McClelland Trophy is awarded to the minor premiers. Some rounds of the season are named as themed rounds, such as Rivalry Round in which traditional rivals are matched up against each other , Women's Round and Heritage Round where teams play in old style guernseys.

Some matches are also themed for special events. For example, each year Collingwood play Essendon in the annual Anzac Day clash at the MCG and the game will typically sell out regardless of the positions of the two teams on the ladder due to their strong rivalry and huge followings. Another annual match is the Queen's Birthday game between Melbourne and Collingwood. As of [update] , Richmond and Essendon play in the Dreamtime at the 'G match. There are separate trophies for the matches between several clubs and former rivalries such as the Lake Trophy between St Kilda and the Sydney Swans.

The top eight teams at the end of the AFL Premiership season compete in a four-week finals series throughout September, culminating in a grand final to determine the premiers. The finals series is played under the AFL final eight system , and the grand final is traditionally played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on the afternoon of the last Saturday in September. The winning team receives a silver premiership cup, a navy blue premiership flag — a new one of each is manufactured each year — and is recorded on the perpetual E.

The flag has been presented since the league began and is traditionally unfurled at the team's first home game of the following season. Other independent best and fairest awards are presented by different football and media organisations. Since the naming of this side, most AFL clubs have nominated their own teams of the century. Since there has been no official state representation for AFL players, despite the concept being well supported among fans and calls to re-introduce a State of Origin series.

VFL players first represented the Victoria representative team in regardless of their state of origin. Being the dominant league drawing many of the country's best players, the Victoria Australian rules football team nicknamed the "Big V" and composed mostly of VFL players dominated interstate matches until the introduction of State of Origin selection criteria by the Australian Football Council in , after which Victoria's results with the other main Australian football states became more even.

The AFL Commission assumed control of interstate football in and co-ordinated an annual State of Origin series typically held during a mid-season bye round. However, after the series, the AFL declared the concept of interstate football "on hold" citing club's unwillingness to release star players and a lack of public interest and shifted its focus of representative football to the International Rules Series where it draws a greater television revenue.

The last time AFL players played formal interstate football was in the State of Origin Series when Victoria inflicted a massive defeat on South Australia in wet conditions in front of a crowd of 26, Just 10 years earlier, the same match with a plethora of star players attracted a crowd of 91, A once-off representative match, known as the AFL Hall of Fame Tribute Match was played in to celebrate the th anniversary of the sport.

The match was played between a team of players of Victorian origin and a team of players of interstate origin the " Dream Team ". Some past AFL players participate and help promote the E. The game itself is a hybrid sport , consisting of rules from both Australian football and Gaelic football.

The series provides the only outlet for AFL players to represent their nation. It was established in December , and then granted almost unilateral administrative control over the league in , [54] after the club parochialism and self-interest which came with the traditional club delegate based administrative structure threatened to undermine the competition.

In addition to administering the national competition, the AFL is heavily involved in promoting and developing the sport in Australia. It provides funds for local leagues and in conjunction with local clubs, administers the Auskick program for young boys and girls.

The AFL also plays a leading role in developing the game outside Australia, with projects to develop the game at junior level in other countries e. South Africa and by supporting affiliated competitions around the world See Australian football around the world.

The AFL is the best-attended sporting league in Australia , [55] and averaged 33, people per game over the season, giving AFL the 4th highest average attendance figures of any professional sport in the world. At the end of the season, a record , people were members of an AFL club.

AFL matches are currently broadcast in Australia by the free-to-air Seven Network , subscription television provider Foxtel , and digital content provider Telstra. The six-year deal which was announced on August covers the inclusive - seasons. The Seven Network usually broadcasts three matches from every round within the season, exceptions being the Easter round 2 and Anzac round 5 rounds in which five matches are aired on the free-to-air television channel.

Telstra provides live match access through the AFL Live app and official full match replays through the app and website via a purchasable AFL Live Pass, free for certain Telstra mobile customers. Foxtel also broadcasts every match through their Fox Footy channels, including simulcasts from the Seven Network except for the Grand Final, which is aired exclusively on Channel Seven.

Foxtel also has the rights to air rounds on their internet protocol television platform titled Foxtel Now. The VFL season was the first broadcast after the commencement of television in Australia introduced in to coincide with the Melbourne Olympic Games. However, in the late s and early s, the VFL was concerned that direct telecasts may affect attendances and stations were only permitted to telecast a delayed replay of the last quarter of games.

The only year Seven did not telecast games was , when the rights were bought by Broadcom, which on-sold the rights to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation ABC.

The exclusive rights were won back by Seven in With the launch of subscription television in Australia, AFL match coverage commenced on cable television. C7 Sport became available in regional areas not in the Foxtel or Optus Vision licence area via Austar soon after the re-launch. Seven had purchased a guaranteed right to make the last bid in , [60] but decided not to outbid their rivals. Foxtel set up its own version of a dedicated AFL-only channel, the Fox Footy Channel , which showed every game on replay during the week as well as many news, talkback and general interest shows related to Australian rules football.

After lengthy negotiations, Foxtel agreed to be a broadcast partner and now showed four live matches each week, although no longer on a dedicated AFL channel. Foxtel showed two games on Saturday and two on Sunday, including a late afternoon or twilight game. Telstra would broadcast all matches via mobile, and Seven would broadcast three live matches Friday Night, Saturday Night, and Sunday Afternoon and one delayed match Saturday Afternoon.

Seven also had the option to on-sell one game a week to either Nine or Ten; this did not happen. Under the terms of the deal, Seven broadcasts at least three live matches per round as well as all Finals matches, whilst Foxtel broadcasts or simulcasts Seven's feed all nine matches per round, as well as all Finals bar the Grand Final, which is exclusively broadcast by Seven. The company run by the pair, Evolution Trading, had sold over 8, illegal set-top boxes that were loaded with add-ons for the popular open-source platform Kodi.

This allowed individuals and publicans to stream Premier League football games for free. So-called "Kodi boxes" have made headlines repeatedly this year for allowing punters to circumvent payments for subscription packages like Sky Sports. During the case, the Judge expressly warned that Haggerty had put all his thousands of customers at risk of prosecution. This is the third case since December where the sale of illegal streaming services providing access to Premiership games has led to a custodial sentence.

Judge Simon Batiste told the couple: The software works in two separate ways; either as a central hub and player for all your home media or as a way of accessing other content across the internet. What sets Kodi apart is that it can be upgraded with plug-ins and add-ons and it's not held back by any kind of licensing - anyone can make any content freely available.

These content streams are made available through repositories that can be accessed from various websites. Kodi's add-ons allow several different streams to be indexed effectively, giving users a simple interface for finding content to watch. Kodi has attracted a lot of notoriety recently because it's the favoured way of accessing illegal content.

Just like a browser or a torrent program, there's nothing wrong with having the software on your machine. Where it gets less clear is when you start using ambiguous add-ons that grant access to copyrighted material. There has been a major crackdown on some third-party apps by copyright owners. Some of the most popular add-ons - such as Phoenix and TVAddons - have shut down due to legal pressure. In furtherance of the above-mentioned goal of restricting access to The Pirate Bay and similar sites, the BPI believes that "ISPs are required to block the illegal sites themselves, and proxies and proxy aggregators whose sole or predominant purpose is to give access to the illegal sites.

This led to the indirect blocking or hiding of sites at the following domains, among others: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Websites blocked in the United Kingdom. Web blocking in the United Kingdom. This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness.
