Another Friday night blockbuster has been locked in for the Western Bulldogs, with the AFL confirming the fixtures for round seven and eight of the 2021 Toyota AFL Premiership Season today.
The Bulldogs will take on the reigning premiers, Richmond, to start round seven.
Already, the Bulldogs have had two Friday night games – against Collingwood in round one and North Melbourne in round three – with a third on the way against the GWS Giants in round six, in Canberra.
It will be the Bulldogs’ second visit to the MCG for 2021, with the Tigers to play hosts for the game on Friday 30 April at 7.50pm AEST.
The match will be broadcast live on Channel 7 and Fox Footy.
From there, the Bulldogs will have a nine-day break before hosting Carlton in round eight, on Sunday 9 May at Marvel Stadium at 3.20pm.
Again, this match will be broadcast on both Channel 7 and Fox Footy.
*The Bulldogs’ round five fixture against the Gold Coast Suns on Saturday 17 April at Marvel Stadium has had the start time changed from 1.45pm AEST to 4.35pm AEST, to allow a standalone time for the AFLW Grand Final at 2pm AEST on the same day.
