2020 VFLW fixture revealed
Williamstown is excited to announce it will kick off its 2020 VFLW campaign with a home twilight match against Carlton.
The May 9 clash at Downer Oval will be followed immediately by the VFL's Round 6 night game against Footscray in what will be the club's first double header of the home-and-away season.
It may also mark the first encounter against former Seagull Sharnie Whiting, who was drafted by the Blues in last year's AFLW Draft.
Continuing with the exciting start to the season, our VFLW side will enjoy a Round 3 night game against the Southern Saints, while new coach Penny Cula-Reid will have to wait until Round 14 before meeting with former club Collingwood.
The Seagulls will play seven home matches across a 16-round season, with two byes in rounds five and 11.
There are set to be a total of five exciting double headers with the VFL side; May 9 (Round 1), May 23 (Round 3), June 21 (Round 7), July 26 (Round 12) and August 16 (Round 15).
Themed Rounds will once again be a feature in season 2020, raising valuable awareness to many causes close to the VFLW community: Sockit2 MND - Round 7, TAC Towards Zero Round – Round 11.
Williamstown will also proudly be hosting games for Pride Day (August 16) and Indigenous Round (May 23), while the teams we play twice are: Hawthorn, Essendon and Darebin.
