The Casey Demons VFL will begin their 2021 VFL campaign on the road against the Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval on Sunday 18th April 2021 for a 12:05 pm start.
The AFL today released the 2021 VFL Premiership Season fixture confirming dates and times for rounds one and two.
The home-and-away season will feature 22 clubs from Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria in a 16-game season across 19 rounds.
This year’s fixture closely aligns with AFL programs, given the involvement of AFL-listed players from 14 AFL clubs and the shared resources across these clubs.
The release of rounds one and two coincides with the current release of the 2021 Toyota AFL Premiership Season fixture and is central to the fixturing of the season.
All clubs will have three allocated byes to provide an added level of flexibility.
The Demons will have to wait until round four before their first home game, which has been scheduled against the Sydney Swans.
Round two will see Casey travel to the Swinburne Centre (Punt Road) to take on Richmond on Saturday 24th April at 2 pm.
Future details for the fixture will be released as the season progresses.
Casey also still has another four practice matches before commencing the home and away season, with the first being against the Northern Bullants at home on Saturday at 11 am.
