The past two AFL seasons have been disappointing for the Adelaide Crows. Despite making the grand final in 2017, the Crows haven't fared recently. Now, a new coach and a transformed squad may help the club get a fresh start and prove critics wrong by pulling off a strong AFL 2020 campaign.

Coach Matthew Nicks is relying on young talent this season, so it might take the team a little time to find their way. The Crows parted ways with a group of veterans at the end of the 2019 season so it will be exciting to see how these changes will impact the club moving forward. Last year, the Crows finished 11th with 10 wins and 12 losses.

How to watch Adelaide Crows AFL matches

Some Adelaide Crows AFL games air live and free on the Seven Network. Channel Seven has the broadcast rights to four matches per week, which vary from state to state. If you're a casual fan, you might be able to get by with free-to-air coverage alone.

Otherwise, you'll want to look into getting a paid subscription to Kayo Sports, Foxtel or Foxtel Now. All services offer coverage of all AFL fixtures with the exception of the grand final both live and on demand.

Out of the three, Kayo Sports is the most affordable option, with subscriptions starting at $25/month. This gives you access to more than 50 sports and a 14-day free trial if you're a new user. In other words, you can give the service a spin for two weeks and see if it's a good fit for you.

You also get access to features like SplitView and Interactive Stats, which make sports streaming a breeze. Check out our Kayo vs Foxtel guide for more information on the two providers. That way, you'll be able to make a more informed choice.

AFL fans can also stream games with AFL Live Pass, which is available for free to Telstra customers. Otherwise, you can purchase a subscription by downloading the official AFL Live app from the App Store or Google Play. Live streaming is limited to a seven-inch display size, so you can't watch matches on the big screen.
