2019 fixture released

Back-to-back games under lights to open the season, a new spin on the Easter weekend clash with Geelong, and another Channel 7 blockbuster against Essendon are among the home-ground highlights of Werribee’s 2019 fixture.

The Victorian Football League - to be known as the Hard Yakka / Totally Workwear VFL for 2019 following a new naming-rights agreement - has today released its official fixture for next year, providing Werribee for a second straight year with a prime opportunity to build some early-season momentum thanks to a run of three matches at Avalon Airport Oval to start the season.

The club is also set to benefit from the VFL’s move to ensure all standalone clubs play each other twice to help maintain traditional rivalries and foster a more equitable draw.

It follows last season’s decision to grant standalone clubs an extra home game for a total of 10 home games across an 18-game season, which has been retained for 2019.

Werribee will open its account with a reprise of this year’s season closer, taking on former alignment partner North Melbourne in a night match on Saturday, April 6 before facing Coburg under lights at home the following week.

It will then be back on home turf for a third straight week to face the Cats, with the now traditional Easter weekend fixture to move up the highway from Torquay’s Spring Creek Reserve to Avalon Airport Oval and from Easter Sunday to Easter Saturday (April 20).

That run of three home games is one of two for the year for Werribee, which will take on traditional rival Williamstown and Collingwood either side of its televised round 13 clash with the Bombers on Sunday, June 30.

The 7VFL team and viewers alike will be eager for a repeat of last year’s thrilling affair, a high-scoring, free-flowing encounter than saw the boys in black and gold prevail by one point.

Werribee will also play host to this year’s grand finalists in the Box Hill Hawks and the Casey Demons and will again have three byes, this time in rounds five, 10, and 20.
