2021 Optus WAFLW Fixtures released

Monday, February 8, 2021 - 10:26 AM

Fixtures have been finalised for the 2021 Optus WAFL Women’s Premiership season, with Round 1 to kick off on the weekend of February 19 and 20. 

The Sharks face the reigning premiers, Peel Thunder in the season opener at David Grays Arena. They travel to Claremont for round two, before playing their first home game in round three against Subiaco.

The first Fremantle Derby takes place on the weekend March 20, put it in your diaries now!

The competition will remain at six teams, allowing for a 15-round-home-and-away fixture with two byes, with each team playing each other three times. 

The change to an earlier start has been made to allow for recent changes by the AFL, with the AFLW U19s National Championships brought forward to the April school holidays and the AFLW Combine and AFLW Draft being moved to late July 2021. 

There is provision for non-selected AFLW players to compete in the Optus WAFLW competition, while some players may return to their local club at the conclusion of the AFLW campaign. 

Fixtures throughout 2021 will be played at WAFL venues, with games being live streamed across WAFL platforms as well as The West Australian online.
