The AFL fixture for 2024 has been released with several changes. Thursday nights are more common this year with a total of 13 rounds featuring a Thursday night match. There will also be occasional Friday double-headers, an Anzac Day match, and a return of Sunday night games. Carlton is set to have a significant amount of prime-time TV exposure. Other big winners from the 2024 AFL fixture include teams from Western Australia, the new Gold Coast coach Damien Hardwick, Geelong, and the Showdown. Losers include fans who don’t like Sunday night games, Sydney, people who dislike the idea of ‘Round 0’, and people with plans in August due to the unscheduled final nine weeks of the home-and-away season.
