How to watch the 2020 AFL Marsh Community Series live
A number of suburban grounds across the country will be used in the new-look AFL pre-season competition, the 2020 AFL Marsh Community Series.
The AFL has often experimented with its pre-season format and that will continue heading into the 2020 campaign.
The concept of a grand final and premier has been discarded, with all teams simply playing two pre-season fixtures over a three-week period to fine-tune preparations for the new season.
The rule experimentations of the past have also largely been dismissed this year. Gimmicks like super goals won't be used. Game plans will be tinkered and youngsters will get a taste of senior football in the build-up to round one.
How to watch the AFL Marsh Community Series
There is no free-to-air coverage of the pre-season competition. Foxtel and Kayo Sports are your only options who'll be broadcasting every game live via FOX FOOTY. We have a full guide to viewing options for the upcoming AFL season here.
