Practice matches: When and where your club is playing

RICHMOND'S sole AFLW game at Punt Road Oval will come in the form of a practice match against West Coast on Australia Day.

All home and away matches have been moved from Richmond's home base to Ikon Park due to capacity issues, meaning the one chance the Tiger Army has to watch its fledgling side at its traditional club home will be this practice match. 

FULL FIXTURE Every round, every game

Most clubs will hold unofficial match simulation sessions this weekend, with conditions (number and length of quarters, etc.) determined by the teams involved, but only a handful are open to the public.

All expansion sides will play each other in the official practice matches the following week, with St Kilda travelling north to take on Gold Coast at Southport Oval.

Carlton's first look at life without former skipper Bri Davey will come against North Melbourne, while Fremantle and Adelaide will play off in a practice match for a fourth consecutive year, as will GWS and Brisbane.

Teams will have a week off between their practice match and round one, with Richmond and Carlton kicking off the home and away season at Ikon Park on February 7.
