Eleven home games at Avalon Airport Oval, Good Friday night footy, Anzac Day and multiple TV blockbusters headline Werribee Football Club’s 2020 VFL fixture.
Members and supporters will get the opportunity to watch the ‘Big W’ an unprecedented 11 times at home throughout its 18-game season. The extra home fixture has been carried over from the 2017 Travelling Tigers campaign.
Mark Williams’ men will be in action at Avalon Airport Oval every weekend for a month from rounds seven to 10 before finishing the regular season with five of its final seven games at home.
A scheduled bye in round one paves the way for the club to officially open its 2020 VFL season with the first ever Good Friday night fixture under lights at Avalon Airport Oval against the Northern Blues.
The next home game in round four sees the club host western rivals Footscray on Anzac Day in another instalment of the HealthWest Cup.
Three Werribee games will be televised on Channel 7 throughout the home and away season. Avalon Airport’s state of the art facilities and upgraded playing surface will be on show in round 14 when the club hosts the Casey Demons on Sunday July 5. Away games in round 6 and round 16 against Sandringham and Frankston respectively will also be broadcast.
