The AFL Women’s season for 2021 kicks off on January 28th with a 7 pm AEDT match between Carlton and Collingwood at Ikon Park, Victoria.

AFLW has seen an incredible boom in success of late, with the ABC reporting that it’s grown by a whopping 331 per cent over the last five years. That trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down either, with Sunday’s match between The Lions and Richmond Tigers selling out tickets completely.

It’s worth noting that in a recent statement shared by the AFL, that with the ever-changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19 restrictions and border closures, some adjustments had to be made to the AFLW schedule.

AFL Head of Women’s Football Nicole Livingstone shared that, “While COVID-19 continues to impact the community, the health and welfare of our players and the community remains the priority and we remain committed to delivering a full season in a safe manner.”

This meant rounds of revised fixtures for the season, and flexible approaches to keeping the live matches COVID-safe. If you plan on attending a game, please be sure to keep across the latest rules and restrictions to ensure everyone’s safety.
