The Demons will cross town for a battle with the Magpies at Victoria Park.

Here's all you need to know for the Sunday afternoon match.

Ticketing

General public tickets will go on sale at 1:00pm on Wednesday, 24 February via Ticketek.

All tickets must be purchased online, with no sales at the gate.

Tickets are $10 for adults and free for under 18s (a ticket must still be redeemed for under 18s).

As this is an away game, Melbourne AFLW Members do not receive free access and must purchase a ticket.

Indigenous Round

This weekend will mark the AFLW's Inaugural Indigenous Round, with the Demons set to pull on a special guernsey designed by Krstel Petrevski.

Petrevski’s design acknowledges both the past and the present, with references to former Demon Aliesha Newman, as well as the Indigenous boys on Melbourne’s current AFL playing list.
