AFL games confirmed for England in 2005/06

General NewsAfter the initial disappointment that the AFL will be unable to play their usual exhibition game at the Oval in London, there is some good news.

The AFL has announced that the re-development of the Oval in Surrey, England, means no exhibition game will be played there in 2004. But an article on their website confirms that matches will be played in 2005 and 2006.

Further good news is that the ground's capacity will have been increased from 19,000 to 23,000, with extra seating and improved facilities. Following the modern trend, the Oval's naming rights have been sold, and it will be known as the Brit.
