Off-season dates and draft order

October 8, 2018 11:00 AM

'We have the formula to be great' Watch the raw footage of Jeremy Howe as he spoke to the media following Collingwood's Grand Final Supporter's Day at the Holden Centre.

The Trade Period deadline has moved to prime time and the National Draft will become a two-day event under major changes to the player movement period.

The trade deadline has been scheduled for 8.30pm on Wednesday 17 October, making the Trade Period itself slightly shorter.

And in a huge change to the draft format, live trading of picks will be available to clubs for the very first time.

The draft returns to Victoria for the first time since 2009, with the televised event being held on 22 and 23 November.

The League has written to clubs confirming the live trading "will be introduced to provide clubs with more flexibility when making player selections and managing their lists."

Live trading will also mean there will be an additional window after the conclusion of the AFL Trade Period for trading of selections only in the lead up to draft night.

*All times are AEDT.

When does the 2018 Free Agency and Trade Period start and finish?
Friday 5 October: Restricted free agency offer and unrestricted free agency period starts.
Monday 8 October (10am): The Trade Period starts.
Friday 12 October (5pm): Close of restricted free agency offer and unrestricted free agency period.
Monday 15 October (2pm): AFL restricted free agency matching offer three-day period ends.
Wednesday 17 October (8.30pm): The Trade Period closes (for exchange of players).

When is the 2018 NAB AFL Draft Combine?
Tuesday 2 October – Friday 5 October: AFL Draft Combine.
Friday 5 October: Victoria / NEAFL / Tasmania State Draft Combine.
Saturday 13 October: South Australian Draft Combine.
Sunday 14 October: West Australian Draft Combine.

When are the 2018 NAB AFL Draft and Rookie Drafts?

Friday 23 November (10am – 1.30pm): National Draft (Round Two onwards to conclusion).

How else can players switch clubs?
Delisted players become free agents and can join new clubs during any of the three delisted player free agency windows. Once clubs have delisted a player, they will receive no compensation should that player be signed by a new club.

The key dates for delisted free agents are as follows:
Wednesday 31 October (2pm): List Lodgement (1)
Thursday 1 November: AFL delisted player free agency period (1) starts
Thursday 8 November: AFL delisted player free agency period (1) closes
Saturday 10 November: AFL delisted player free agency period (2) starts
Friday 16 November (5pm): AFL delisted player free agency period (2) closes 
Friday 23 November (1.30pm – 2.30pm): AFL delisted player free agency period (3)
Tuesday 27 November (2pm): Final AFL club list lodgement
