VFL live stream: How to watch the VFL, full fixtures, TV guide

The 2024 VFL season will be played between Friday, March 22 and Sunday, September 22, when it concludes with the VFL Grand Final. Here is your guide to watching every game on TV, or live streaming state league Aussie Rules online.

The Gold Coast Suns were premiers of the VFL last year defeating Werribee at Ikon Park to secure their first piece of silverware at any professional level.

Most rounds of the VFL season will see 10 matches played, with one club having a bye. They are generally split into one Friday, six on Saturday and three on Sunday, although there can be differences from time to time.

Under the terms of the VFL TV deal, all nine games are available to be viewed on a live stream online. You can scroll down to the bottom of this article to see which games are coming up this weekend.
