To accommodate the extra teams a conference system was implemented. The first game was played on the 2nd of February and the season concluded with the 2019 AFL Women's Grand Final between Adelaide and Carlton on the 31st of March. Adelaide won by a margin of 45 to win their second premiership. The two new teams, Geelong and North Melbourne joined the competition, bringing the total number of teams to ten.

Ladder

Despite the introduction of new teams, the league retained a seven-round home-and-away season. This was achieved by splitting the competition into two conferences. Each team play four games against their fellow conference members and three "cross-over" matches against teams from the other conference. Conference membership was based on the final ladder positions of the 2018 season. The finals series was expanded to include preliminary finals for the first time; the two teams who finish the highest in each conference at the end of the home-and-away season qualified for the preliminary finals. The winners of these games played in the AFL Women's Grand Final. The make-up of the conferences, along with the fixture, was released in October 2018. The conference system proved controversial as the teams in Conference A consistently outplayed the teams on Conference B, resulting in the first, second, fifth and sixth best overall teams making the finals.
