    It depends on the club, and when their season finished.

    9.1 Post Season Leave
    • (a) A Player shall be entitled to Leave between his Club’s Season Conclusion Date and its Recommencement Date (Post Season Leave).
    • (b) A Club’s Season Conclusion Date shall be the Tuesday after the Club’s final match of the AFL Season, except that:
      • (i) if the Club provides Players days off on the Monday and Tuesday following its final match, then the Season Conclusion Date may be the Wednesday after the final match;
      • (ii) if a Club wins the Grand Final, the Season Conclusion Date may be the Wednesday after the Grand Final;
      • (iii) if a Club used reasonable endeavours to complete individual medical screenings and follow up activities prior to the Season Conclusion Date but was unable to do so, Players may be required to attend for such activities reasonably after the Season Conclusion Date;
      • (iv) Players may be required to attend the Club’s Best and Fairest, which shall be scheduled no later than the weekend following the Grand Final.
    • (c) In each year, the AFL will determine the Recommencement Date, provided that:
      • (i) the Recommencement Date for Clubs that did not participate in weeks 2-4 of the Finals Series shall not be prior to the date determined by the AFL and AFLPA in mid-November;
      • (ii) the Recommencement Date for Clubs that participated in weeks 2-4 of the Finals Series shall not be prior to 1 December;
      • (iii) a Club may require players with four or less years on an AFL Primary List to return for developmental training two weeks prior to its Recommencement Date; and
      • (iv) each Player shall receive a minimum of six weeks Leave prior to the Recommencement Date
    9.2 Other Leave Periods
    • (a) Players shall receive two weeks Leave over Christmas and New Year (Christmas Leave) and may not be required to resume training prior to 4 January in any year.
    • (b) Each Club shall provide Players two breaks of four days each during the period between 4 January and the first match of the Pre-Season Competition. For the avoidance of doubt, Clubs are not required to provide a mid-week day off in a week in which there is a four-day break. For the avoidance of doubt, a Club is not required to provide a mid-week day off in two consecutive weeks where it provides a four-day break over a weekend (including both Monday and Friday).
    • (c) During the Premiership Season, each Club shall provide Players a break of four days in any week in which the Club is not scheduled to play. For the avoidance of doubt, Clubs are not required to provide a mid-week day off in a week in which there is a four-day break

    AFL happy to publicize "This is when draft combines you won't watch are" but nothing on the fixture until 2 days before they decide to release it. Pretty annoying in 2018.

    For the first time in recent memory, the NRL will release their fixture (next week) before ours. With SFS being demolished, there will be quite a few NRL games @ SCG so this could make things interesting. At least the AFL will be able to avoid clashes with RL if they want to.

    Two notes on that:
    1. NRL was out before AFL last year (October 19 NRL, October 30 AFL)
    2. Wouldn't surprise me if it was the same day release, both have been working on their fixtures for several months.

    In tiny writing on the fixture page on the AFL website it says the fixture is being released on Wednesday, October 31. Expect some decent leaks towards the end of this week.
