Drawn Match (Playing of Additional Time)

The AFL advises the process for playing of additional time if scores are even following the 2022 NAB AFLW Grand Final Season Seven.

The following procedure shall apply in the event of a draw at the end of ordinary time:

  • Six-minute and 30 second break. 
  • Additional Time period of two x three-minute halves (plus time on) will be played as required, until a result is determined.

1. Goal umpires confirm scores are identical;
2. There is a six minute and 30 second break;
3. Teams change ends;
4. Three minutes of Additional Time shall be played, plus time-on;
5. At the end of the first Additional Time period, the siren will sound and teams will immediately change ends without a break;
6. The ball will be thrown up in the centre and a further three minutes of play (plus time-on) will commence;
7. At the conclusion of this period, the siren will sound and the team with the highest score is declared the winner;
8. If scores are still tied, steps three - eight are repeated until a result is determined.

Note: There will be no breaks in play for Coaches or Club Football Officials to access the Playing Area.
Any Starting Position (5-6-5) warnings are reset for each period of Additional Time.
