News Corp’s the Herald Sun has announced it will launch a 68-page national annual magazine aimed at women’s AFL called Women’s Footy.
Aimed at anyone who follows AFLW and young women interested in the game, Women’s Footy is a glossy magazine that champions the sport and will be available at selected newsagents from January 22.

“The launch issue carries interviews with stars of the game such as Tayla Harris, Katie Brennan and Daisy Pearce, fitness and nutrition advice, plus we profile seven younger players who are destined to be the next generation of stars.”
“With four new clubs – West Coast, Richmond, Gold Coast and St Kilda – entering the competition this year it is clear the sport’s popularity will continue to surge with more women now getting the opportunity to play the game they love at a professional level.”
Women’s Footy is on sale for $4.95 at selected newsagents with the Herald Sun, Adelaide Advertiser and Courier Mail.
