How close do you live to Launceston?

About as far as New York is from Chicago. :-)

I thought it was on your little island, my bad. I thought for sure Tasmania was going to be the site for some group stage games.

Launceston is in Tasmania (the South Island). Looks like it will indeed host some group games.

But if you want to drive there from here in Sydney, it's about 9 hours to Melbourne, then an overnight ferry crossing of Bass Strait in the middle of winter, then a short drive from Devonport. Or you could fly direct in about 90 minutes.

The matches will also be held in the middle of AFL season, so you could catch some games of that, too.
