AFL: Gather Round dates confirmed

The AFL have confirmed the dates for the 2024 Gather Round, which will once again take place in South Australia.

The inaugural Gather Round was a huge success in the 2023 AFL campaign, when South Australia hosted the ‘festival of footy’ and once again every team will travel to the state in 2024.

All games in 2023 were sold out and just over 268,000 supporters flocked through the gates over the four days of action.

The same can be expected in 2024 when all 18 AFL teams head to Adelaide. Let’s take a look at what will be in store in 2024.

History of the Gather Round

After seeing the success of the ‘Magic Round’ in the NRL, where all teams travel to Brisbane for a jam-packed weekend of action at Suncorp Stadium, the AFL were keen to follow suit.

In 2022 the AFL announced they would introduce their own version of the extravaganza, with all teams heading to a state other than Victoria to play the Gather Round.

South Australia hosted the Gather Round in 2023 and will continue to do so until 2026, when another state in Australia will get to take over.

Even though all fixtures are set to played in the same city, Adelaide, unlike the Magic Round, they will not be held at the same venue.

In 2023 six games were played at the home of Port Adelaide and Adelaide Crows, the Adelaide Oval, but the Norwood Oval and Summit Sports Park in the Adelaide Hills, also hosted games.

The same will happen in 2024.

Gather Round dates

The AFL have confirmed that the 2024 Gather Round will run from Thursday 4th April until Sunday 7th April.

It will be Round 4 of the AFL season, but the fixtures and schedule will only be announced later in the year.

However, by locking in the dates early, it will allow the supporters plenty of time to book flights and accommodation.

2023 Gather Round results

Collingwood went on to win the 2023 AFL grand final and are priced at 5.00 to go back-to-back and win it again in 2024.

They also played out one of the best games of the 2023 Gather Round when beating St Kilda by just six points at the Adelaide Oval, in the last game.

There were other close games also with Greater Western Sydney beating Hawthorn by just two points, while Fremantle beat Gold Coast Suns by 10.

Brisbane Lions, who lost the grand final to Collingwood, played North Melbourne in the Adelaide Hills and won by 75 points.

The Lions can be backed at 7.00 to win the 2024 grand final.

Elsewhere, Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide both got the job done on home soil. The Crows beat Carlton by 56 points, while Port edged out Western Bulldogs by 14.

Essendon beat Melbourne by 27 points, while Sydney Swans thrashed Richmond Tigers by 44.
