This International Women’s Day we are calling on our AFLW fans to #BeBoldForChange. Every person can play their part in driving better outcomes and creating a better future for women and girls. This is just the beginning.

We’re inviting as many friends, couples and families to come along to a special FREE event at the MCG in Melbourne, Victoria on Tuesday 7 March 2017.

We’re encouraging as many women and girls as possible to have a fun and casual kick of the footy out on the G, meet some of our AFLW players, pick up some fun giveaways and show their support for women in our game. Plus you can be a part of our history-making AFLW fan photo. We hope this helps to create new footy rituals for the future.

Please bring your own football. A small number of footballs will be available to kick on the ground. No football boots are allowed on ground, so please wear flat shoes or runners. Music and fun giveaways will be a part of the event. Note: This event is limited to 700 registered participants so register quick for your spot!

Note: This event is limited to 700 registered participants and is now full, thank you.

The Game

Match Quarters

On The Clock

These games are going to be short, sharp and action packed. The quarters will run for 15mins apiece. Time on will be called in the last two minutes of each quarter for all stoppages (probably 20mins all up). When you add in the quarter, half time and three-quarter time breaks, the whole match will be done and dusted in 2hrs.

Match Quarters

On The Ground

Each team will field 16 a side with most of the players in favour of the change. With a few less out there the game seems to flow better. And fans always love to see the ball moving, efficient scoring and spectacular marks!

Match Quarters

On The Bench

Five players cooling the bench (and keeping cool) plus two emergencies helps keep the players safer from dangerous heat stress and to keep physical injuries down. As a bonus this keeps almost the whole team in the thick of the action on the day (which is great for everyone).

  Interchange

Interchange

With the women performing at capacity out there in pretty warm conditions across February and March there are uncapped rotations so players are able to grab needed bench time to cool down and recover.

Smaller Ball

Ball Size

It might be hard for the fans to pick it, but the ball is a little smaller with the Sherrin at a size 4. Scientific analysis showed it suited the female bodies better and as a bonus their kicks can fly further too.

Out of Bounds

Out of Bound / Rushed Behinds

At this level the players must aim to keep the ball in play, so a free kick will be given against a player who Kicks or Handballs the footy over the Boundary Line without it being touched by another Player. The only time this rule doesn’t apply is if a player who isn’t holding the ball stops someone touching the ball before it goes out.

Smaller Ball

Bye Bye Bounce

The traditional bounce is bounced with umpires throwing up the smaller ball instead from centre square and for ball ups.

Congratulations
Western Bulldogs!
