Overview Edit

There were a few notable fixture changes, mainly the construction of Optus Stadium in Perth which has become the home of Fremantle and West Coast.

There were no notable managerial changes throughout the 2018 season.

Collingwood had a noticeable incline in ladder position from a 13th place finish in 2017 to a 3rd place finish in 2018.

On the other hand, Adelaide dropped from minor premiers in 2017 to 12th in 2018, Port Adelaide went from a promising 5th place in 2017 to a disappointing 10th place finish for 2018.
