Werribee will play its first competitive hitout at the redeveloped Avalon Airport Oval when it takes on Essendon on March 24 in the last of three practice matches ahead of the 2018 Peter Jackson VFL season.
The club has confirmed the game as part of a three-match pre-season schedule that kicks off against Williamstown on March 10 at Deakin University’s Geelong Waurn Ponds campus and also features a Friday-night fixture against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium six days later.
The game against the Bombers will mark the official end of Werribee’s pre-season period, with the club set to begin its 2018 campaign against Geelong on Easter Sunday at Torquay’s Spring Creek Reserve.
