The Western Bulldogs will host four major open training sessions for fans across 2019-20, starting with a Christmas open session next month.
These sessions will replace the traditional Family Day event.
They will be split across the pre-season and in-season, with the intention of having players more accessible to fans.
Christmas open training will be a joint AFL-AFLW session, from 8.30am to 9.30am on Saturday 14 December, with player signings from 9.30am.
A further pre-season session will be held in early February, on the eve of the AFL season, plus a morning session in May and a school holiday opportunity in June.
