If sometime over the next 50/100 years the AFL was to expand internationally, which country do you think would be the most likely to have a team?

Again, I think they play each other 3 times then semi's and a GF.
Don't think there is a stadium the right shape to host anything AFL like...

Maybe in 25yrs...maybe...
Hagley Oval looks the right shape for AFL in Christchurch. It's small, so only capable for one or two games a year, but could host a few if an NZ team came in.

149 metres is probably not long enough for an AFL match. Although its pretty much circular, so wider than Docklands. I also doubt the AFL considers an overseas Hobart-sized city a priority. A few people might fly over to a game before/after heading up to Queenstown for skiing. ***avoids obvious comment***
