AFLW Sign and Trade Period

 

With season three of the NAB AFL Women's competition completed, eyes now turn to the AFLW Sign and Trade Period starting Monday April 8.

For the first time, clubs will be able to sign players on two-season deals, with no limit on the number of one- or two-season contracts teams can offer.

The four new teams – Gold Coast, Richmond, St Kilda and West Coast – can each sign up to 12 players from other teams. Eight of those players can come from Brisbane and Fremantle and four from the other teams.
