REVEALED: What the AFL’s National Women’s League players will be paid in season one

The majority of the players in the AFL’s inaugural women’s league will be paid around $5,000.

The Herald Sun, who revealed in May that the marquee players from each club will earn $25,000 for the season, has now revealed the proposed payment scale for the remaining players.

Marquee players will be paid a $15,000 playing fee, plus a $10,000 marketing component.

Priority pre-signings, of which there will be one at each Victorian club, will be paid a proposed $10,000.

High draft selections, of which there will likely be four at each club, will also be paid around $10,000.

The remaining players will most likely receive the minimum $5000.

Pre-season begins in November, before the eight-week competition starts in February next year.


  1. Why do only the Victorian teams get a priority pre signing isn’t it supposed to be an Australian league shouldn’t all teams get the same deal it’s typical of the vfl sorry afl

  2. I like the $10,000 marketing aspect of their salary. This should be a possible bonus for all the players once they get involved. Scale it so that they all go out and get among the community.
