    I missed this article originally.
    https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl...-11-week-season-for-2020-20190730-p52c5n.html

    Suggestions of further AFLW expansion potentially being in 2022 and 2024.

    Mention of potential for an 8 week AFLW regular season in 2020 (6 in conference, 2 cross conference) and a 3 week finals with wildcards rather than best X in in each conference making finals. However the AFL executive is yet to make final decisions with a time frame of late August suggested.

    How hard is it for the AFLW to say conferences are fine but there's just one league ladder??? That way you can still play your conference games but the best teams are rewarded, regardless of which conference they sit in. Then the finals will be a showcase of the best teams that year! Easy!

    I still think they gotta bite the bullet and let every team play each other once each.

    I reckon it will be Conference winners plus next 4 best teams from either conference. Even if they monumentally stuff up the conferences again the outcome should see 5 of the best 6 sides in the finals.

    I don't see any reason that they couldn't play 8 rounds without conferences. An uneven draw is an uneven draw which won't be perfect but a top 6 will be better in any case.

    And yes, like 99% of fans I still feel a better system would be 13 rounds in 2020 with fixtures reversed in 2021 before the next expansion taking it to 15 rounds with similar alternating fixtures in 2022 and 2023. Ultimately the season will be longer just how quickly it gets there will be the unknown.

    From an ORFFW perspective 6 rounds plus 2 weeks of finals over 8 weeks can provide a greater range of options for 6, 8 and 10 team leagues. 10 team comps would be difficult with any less then 8 rounds.

    Agree 100% mate, however regardless of format the # of weeks increasing can only be a good thing for those playing AFLW fantasy comps, 5 weeks felt very compact this season.

    According to this article the AFLW CBA negotiations are tied to the 2020, 2021 and 2022 AFLW season fixture discussions

    This allows us to look at league structures that will work from 2022 onward and figure out what this means for 2020 and 2021.
