The following article by Jennifer Phelan for the AFL.com website details the decision by the Melbourne Demons to commit to an additional two years of playing games in the Northern Territory.
This is exciting news for Territorians just two days out from the final Northern Territory match for 2014 on Saturday between the Melbourne Demons and the Fremantle Dockers.
MELBOURNE'S commitment to the Northern Territory has been extended for at least another two years and four home-and-away games.
The Demons will play at least one game a year at Darwin’s TIO Stadium, with a second at either that venue or Alice Springs' Traeger Park, in 2015 and 2016.
It signals an extension of their existing agreement with the AFL, the Territory's government and AFLNT that has seen them play in the region for the past five years.
Their second game for this season is on Saturday night against Fremantle at TIO Stadium, after their round 11 clash with Port Adelaide at Traeger Park.
