2016 AFL Season

It is going to be an action packed year of AFL in Tasmania in 2016 with the first Friday night game to be contested and powerhouse teams to challenge the Hawks and Kangaroos.

The announcement of the AFL fixtures for 2016 will have local footy fans counting down the sleeps to game day, and interstate die-hards booking flights to Tasmania.

This is not just great news for fans, it is also great for the economy, tourism and hospitality and the community.

Tasmanians will have a fantastic chance to watch our nation’s game in our own backyard and some of the best teams and greatest players in the league.

This will build on a bumper 2015 season that injected around $50 million into the economy and attracted tens of thousands of visitors from interstate.
