The fixture, which was released on Friday, sees Freo open the season with an away trip to play Melbourne at Casey Fields on Sunday 3 February, followed by two consecutive home games at Fremantle Oval.

Fremantle will play Brisbane on Sunday 10 February and Collingwood on Saturday 16 February.

Fremantle then head to the top end to take on Adelaide in Darwin at TIO Stadium on Saturday 23 February before returning to WA to take on the Western Bulldogs at Fremantle Oval on Sunday 3 March.

The club will play their first AFLW game against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium on Saturday 9 March in round six.

The season will wrap up with a home clash against North Melbourne at Fremantle Oval on Saturday 16 March.

Under the new conference system, the two top sides in each conference play off in preliminary finals on Saturday 23 March, with the winners to face off in the Grand Final on either 30 March or 31 March.

Fremantle’s AFLW manager Darryn Fry said the fixture posed an exciting challenge for the group.

“It’s hard not to get excited by the release of the fixture,” Fry said. 

“We have an extremely motivated group who can’t wait to get started on their preparations for round one against Melbourne.

“There are some great teams in our conference, including the reigning premiers and a new expansion team who have recruited extremely well. It will be a tough test but one I know this group will embrace.

“We’re pleased to have four home games at Fremantle Oval, which will allow Freo fans every opportunity to see the girls in action.”
