2020 AFL Sapphire Coast Season Dates locked in!

After club consultation, we are pleased to be able to confirm season dates for the 2020 AFL Sapphire Coast competition!

This season, Round 1 for all senior grades (Men’s Division One and Two and Women’s) will be on the 4th of April.

All junior competitions will commence on the 2nd of May, after the school holidays. After feedback from clubs, we believe this will give clubs the best opportunity to be well prepared for the season. We appreciate the patience of all clubs and players during the process to confirm competition structures and season dates.

After reviewing club team nominations, AFL Sapphire Coast has also now finalised the competition structure  for 2020.

2020 will see the introduction of the first Sapphire Coast ‘Youth Girls’ competition. This will be an Under 15 competition to provide under age female only playing options within the region to assist in recruitment and retention.

As confirmed at the end of last year, the previously named Men’s ‘Seniors’ and ‘Reserves’ competition will be renamed in 2020 as Division 1 Men’s and Division 2 Men’s respectively.

in 2020, AFL Sapphire Coast will have the following age divisions:

Division 1 Men’s (formally Seniors)

Division 2 Men’s (formally Reserves)


Under 16s

Under 15s Youth Girls

Under 14s Mixed

Under 12s Mixed

Under 10s Mixed


The league is currently in the process of  preparing a fixture for season 2020 with a draft to be provided to clubs to review in the coming days. As soon as the review process has been completed, the final fixture will updated online and released on the website
