The 124th season of the Australian Football League, aka the AFL or the Aussie Rules, will kick off on March 19, 2020. Footy fans have six full months of spectacular action as 18 teams compete for the champion’s title.
For online coverage, your best shot would be to stream via Telstra available on mobile, IPTV, and T-Box. Notably, all Telstra mobile customers can live stream the 2019 AFL games data-free.
Luckily, the AFL has several international broadcast partners, so many of you footy buffs can catch the live coverage of AFL outside of Australia.

BT Sport and BT Sport/ESPN showcase five AFL games per week right through to the Toyota AFL Grand Final, and a weekly highlights program. The sports TV service is available in the UK and Ireland on Sky, Virgin TV Go, and BT TV, as well as via BT Sports web portal and mobile app.
Of note is the recent expansion of the Virgin TV Go coverage – you can now watch its content anywhere in the European Union.
