Three Adelaide games will be showed on a delayed basis for local free to air television viewers during the upcoming 2018 Toyota AFL Premiership Season.

The Club's maiden visit to Perth's Optus Stadium to face Fremantle in Round 12 marks the first of the delayed telecasts, with home games against West Coast (Round 15) and North Melbourne (Round 22) also delayed on free to air into Adelaide/SA. 

As per the current six-year broadcast rights arrangement, that was announced in 2015, that the AFL has with its partners the Seven Network and Foxtel / Fox Footy, three matches for each of those four teams in the premiership season will be broadcast live on subscription television and on a delayed basis on free to air television into the club’s home market in Adelaide/SA and Perth/WA respectively. 

Seven Network holds the Free to Air rights, for SA and WA with matches shown on free to air television, but three matches for each team in the premiership season to be broadcast on a delayed basis. 

Subscription rights for SA and WA are held by Foxtel and the Fox Footy Channel, who broadcast every game of every round during the premiership season into those states,  and also exclusively broadcast live three premiership season matches for each of the teams based in those states – West Coast Eagles, Fremantle, the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide – with those matches to be aired on delay on free to air television.
