Reaction from Bulldogs’ CEO Ameet Bains:
“Overall, we’re pleased with the 2021 fixture from a Bulldogs perspective.
“We have terrific exposure on free-to-air television early in the season, with four of the first six games to be broadcast on Channel 7. Hopefully we can maintain that presence throughout the rest of the season.
“We were keen to again be involved in the Good Friday game against North Melbourne, and we’re honoured to be given the opportunity to take part in such an important occasion, for a fantastic cause.
“We’re also looking forward to heading back to Ballarat early in the season against a strong opponent in the Brisbane Lions, after being unable to play at Mars Stadium in 2020.
“From a football perspective it’s exciting to have some challenges from the outset, including playing four of last year’s finalists in the first six-week block, and heading interstate on six occasions overall.
“Our fans will be looking forward to some of our home games against strong Victorian opponents, including Essendon, Carlton, Melbourne and St Kilda.
“We believe that the momentum we’re building on and off the field presents a great opportunity for our fans to become members in 2021 and come along on the journey with us.”
