THE Werribee Football Club will begin its 2024 Smithy’s VFL campaign with an away trip against Geelong.
The Big W will travel south to the Cattery on Saturday, March 23, with the first bounce at 2:05pm.
After four practice matches heading into the season, this game marks the first official game under the helm of head coach Jimmy Allan.
The remainder of the VFL fixture will be released early next week, with all teams to play 18 matches across 21 rounds.
"Facing off against an AFL-affiliated side presents a significant challenge, but it's precisely the kind of test we relish," remarked Werribee Football Manager Ash Collins. "It's an opportunity for our players to showcase their talents against top-tier competition, setting the stage for an exciting season ahead".
