2020 VFL fixture revealed
Williamstown will kick off its 2020 VFL campaign with four home matches at Downer Oval from the first five rounds of the season.
And it all begins in Round 1 with another blockbuster night game against arch rival Port Melbourne from 7:15pm on April 4, with the two sides to play for the Johnson-Callahan Cup, in honour of former club legends Gerry Callahan and Frank Johnson.
In exciting news for our fans, our first six games involve matches against competition heavyweights Collingwood, Essendon, Richmond, Footscray and Box Hill. The Round 2 clash against Collingwood is set to be an Easter Sunday blockbuster to be broadcast on Channel 7, whilst Round 5 will see us seeking revenge in a Grand Final replay against Richmond.
The Seagulls will host six home games on a Sunday and four home games on a Saturday (including two under lights).
Fans will be able to enjoy three local derbies next season, including a night game at Downer Oval against the Bulldogs in Round 6 for the Terry Wheeler Cup with a return clash in Round 15 at the Whitten Oval. The Seagulls will also venture along the Princes highway for an away game to Werribee in Round 9.
There will be eight AFL-aligned clubs who venture to Downer Oval; Collingwood, Richmond, Footscray, Sandringham, Casey Demons, Northern Blues, Geelong and Essendon.
