FormatEdit

The league consisted of 13 full-time teams (12 from Victoria and 1 from Tasmania) that competed in a 13-round home and away season. Following the regular season, the top three teams had a bye and the remaining 10 teams contested a wildcard round to determine positions four to eight. The top eight teams then competed in a three-week knockout finals series, which culminated in the Grand Final between the two winning teams from the preliminary finals.[1] Five academy teams (Brisbane Lions Academy, Gold Coast Suns Academy, Sydney Swans Academy, GWS Giants Academy and Northern Territory Thunder) participated in three-to-four matches during the season, though were not eligible for finals matches.[1][2][3]
