R10 FIXTURE: Festival of Footy hits Victoria with finals on the line

SIX OF the seven round 10 NAB AFLW matches will be played in Victoria as part of the Footy Festival, which leads into round one of the Toyota AFL Premiership Season.

Match-ups have altered since the initial round 10 fixture was released as a result of COVID-caused changes earlier in the season.

The Western Bulldogs will have a tough task in their quest for their first finals appearance since their premiership year of 2018, taking on reigning premier Brisbane at Mars Stadium in Ballarat.

The standout highlights from Round 7 of the 2022 season

Fremantle will host Gold Coast at Fremantle Oval as the sole non-Victorian match, having spent considerable time in Melbourne and Tasmania earlier this season.

"We are thrilled to be able to update the AFLW community with the fixture for Round 10 of the 2022 NAB AFL Women’s competition, and with some big match ups which will determine the make-up of the top six, we share in the excitement of all fans in looking forward to the final round of the home-and-away season," AFL general manager of women's football Nicole Livingstone said.

"The Festival of Footy in Victoria will see a celebration for all footy fans and we look forward to cheering on AFLW and AFL teams across the 10-day period."

AFL general manager of competition management Laura Kane said health and safety remained important in the closing stages of the season.

"As the season builds towards a much anticipated NAB AFLW Finals Series, the health and safety of the community remains the highest priority for the AFL and we will continue to work closely with respective state governments and health authorities on arrangements that both protects that and allows us to progress and complete the NAB AFLW season," she said.
