The reigning premiers will kick off their year with a Grand Final rematch against North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos at Brighton Homes Arena on Sunday September 1 from 3:05pm. 

The Lions will play host on six occasions with fans treated to a footy frenzy at Brighton Homes Arena in week 3 and 4 with Collingwood and the Bulldogs both travelling north.

Head of Women’s Football, Breeanna Brock said the Lions were looking forward to pushing for greater attendance and building the excitement amongst the local community and Lions fans. 

“This will be our second full season at Brighton Homes Arena and the group is looking forward to taking on the challenge against high quality opposition,” Brock said. 

“We have some great opponents travelling up here and we’ll get to test ourselves against some of the best in the competition.” 

“We had some great crowds at Springfield last year, and we are on a mission in 2024 to smashing our attendance from years past. 

“This season we are urging our Lions fans, members and the broader local community to get behind our group.” 

“The commitment from our players to sign long term contracts gives us such a great platform for continued success and stability ahead of another big season.” 

For the first time, teams will play an 11-game NAB AFLW home and away season with an additional game on either a Tuesday or Wednesday as ‘Mid-Week Footy’ is introduced during a four-week block across weeks four to seven in the draw.   

Pride Round will be playing in Week 7 and Indigenous Rounds will be Weeks 9 and 10. 

The Lions travel to Melbourne four times over the course of the season to tackle Melbourne in week 2 at Casey to kick off four games in a condensed fixture.
