The Australian Football League (AFL) has agreed to almost double the wages of players in the AFLW women’s competition as part of a new collective bargaining agreement with the AFL Players’ Association (AFLPA).

The one-year agreement will see players across the competition’s four payment tiers receive, on average, a 94-per-cent pay rise next season. The top payment band has been increased from A$37,155 ($26,113/€25,746) to A$71,395; the second band has been increased from A$28,697 to A$55,559; the third band has been increased from A$24,468 to A$47,372; and the minimum wage has been increased from A$20,239 to A$39,184.
