The next generation of AFL talent will begin their journey to the big time tonight, with the first night of the 2023 AFL Draft upon us. Join The Roar for a live blog of Day 1 from 7pm (AEDT).

The AFL has once again split the draft across two nights; the first will feature the first round only, while Tuesday night will see every other pick lodged. Wednesday night will also see the pre-season and Rookie drafts completed.

The event will be held at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne for the second year in a row.

The build-up to this year’s draft has been as fascinating as ever, with the fate of West Coast’s pick 1 – and with it the rights to young star Harley Reid – a hot discussion point.

As it stands, the Eagles are expected to keep their pick rather than trade it to North Melbourne, securing Reid – and potentially entertain a pick swap to try and obtain Western Australian gun Daniel Curtin as well.

Gold Coast will also likely need to match an early bid for Academy gun Jed Walter, which could influence the rest of the first round as well.

It’s set to be a memorable night for nearly two dozen of the AFL’s best and brightest up and coming talents, so stay tuned to The Roar for every pick as it happens, with the first pick to be made at 7:10pm (AEDT).


Where: Marvel Stadium (Melbourne)
First pick: 7:10pm (AEDT); Monday, November 28
Watch: Fox Footy, Kayo Sports
