Does anybody know where I can go to pick up a AFL Football Fixture for this year. Usually by this stage I would have my football fixture, but this year I haven't seen one avaiable.

Can’t seem to find anything online but your best bet would be either your local AFL Store, or trying newsagents. There’s a chance they weren’t made this year due to the high possibility of major changes to the fixture through the season.

I got one a few years ago from the local Thirsty Camel so you could try there? Like FT said because of the unpredictable fixture there's a chance that none were made for 2021.

Going by the picture I found, they must be producing them. I say a reduction in the amount made would be due to the chance there will be change. However my fixture for 2020 was totally reprinted by myself and stuck into the normal fixture.

I just hope that the AFL fixture isn't another thing that we loss because of Covid-19. The things we have lost so far have been things like local newspapers in suburban Melbourne and Caribbean Gardens Market. I know there are others, we will look back at this time and think about the things we lost.

The picture you found is the 2019 one, from DynamicGift who do promotional items.

Could be worth asking them.

Email them early this morning and have not received a message back. Tried an AFL store today, they didn't get them this year. Dynamic Gift also produces a NRL fixture, and they don't announce the make up of rounds until later in the year. The AFL has done this for Round 23 for a few years now.

So a few years have gone by and I no longer have Illustrator or Photoshop, and have fallen a bit behind with the Adobe Creative Suite. Is it possible to buy these programs as a once off for full ownership, or is it all subscription based now?

Does anyone know when guernseys stopped being genuine wool and became acrylic wool? Got a Crows guernsey from 1991 and it's what I'd call a Woolen guernsey but tagged as 100% acrylic

Also - anyone know where I'd find period correct numbers for the back of it?

Acrylic started to be the choice about 1970.

Welcome back mate 🙌

A few of us have moved to Affinity Photo, who currently have a 90 day free trial due to Covid, and a cheaper one-time payment if you want to buy it. See what you think!

Some VFA questions:

a) When did they introduce numbers, 1911 or 1912?

b) When did they introduce home and away shorts, 1924 like the VFL?

c) Did every team in the VFA wear their new coloured shorts in every game of 1975?
And if so, when were white shorts reintroduced?
