AFL Sydney Premier Division Fixtures Released


Hard to believe we are one month away from Round 1 of the AFL Sydney 2021 season!

2020 was a year like no other. Our COVID impacted season saw nine games played in the home and away season, along with a reduced finals series for many competitions.

Thankfully, all appears to be on-track for a much smoother 2021, with a return to a full home and away schedule of 18 games (17 for divisional competitions) along with a full finals series for all competitions. And what an exciting season we have on the cards!

The countdown is on…

See below for a fixture release snapshot for Premier Division Men’s and Premier Division Women’s competitions.


Men’s Premier Division:

The season commences on Saturday, April 10 and what a way to kick it off! After taking all before them during the 2020 home and away season (9-0), North Shore Bombers play host to Sydney University who compiled an impressive home and away season themselves (8-1) before getting the better of the Bombers in the Preliminary Final (Henson Park), and as we know now lifting the cup seven days later against UNSW-ES Bulldogs at Kanebridge Oval.

Round 1 also sees Pennant Hills Demons hosting UNSW-ES Bulldogs, as they open their fantastic new facility at Mike Kenny Oval, Cherrybrook. Credit to all involved at the Demons for their work to deliver the facility which will be the envy of many a club who visits. Round 1 also showcases the UTS AFC vs Camden Cats at Waverley Oval, Manly Warringah Wolves vs Inner West Magpies at Weldon Oval and East Coast Eagles vs St George Dragons at Kanebridge Oval.

As the season continues, we have so many mouth-watering match ups which cannot be missed. Starting with a massive day on the AFL Sydney calendar – ANZAC Day, this season sees two match days being playing on Sunday, April 25 including the traditional AFL Sydney ANZAC matchup between Inner West Magpies and Pennant Hills Demons at Picken Oval. In addition, we also have the Grand Final rematch between UNSW-ES Bulldogs (hosting) and Sydney University, this will be the Bulldogs’ first game of the season at Henson Park following upgrade work on the turf during the off-season.

Women’s Premier Division:

What a season we have coming up in 2021 in the Women’s Premier Division, after a 2020 campaign in which all teams who qualified for finals could have raised the cup. In the end it was the Manly Warringah Wolves team (8-1) who took all before them. After a close encounter with the East Coast Eagles on Semi Final day Manly Warringah then proved too strong for a courageous Inner West Magpies outfit on Grand Final Day.

And what a start to the 2021 season we have, with the Wolves commencing their premiership defence against their Grand Final opponents Inner West Magpies at Weldon Oval, a match not to be missed. Round 1 also see a fantastic matchup between East Coast Eagles and Southern Power at Kanebridge Oval and a North Shore Bombers outfit fresh off a great season in 2020 up against Sydney University at Gore Hill. Week One is rounded out with Pennant Hills Demons hosting UNSW-ES Bulldogs at Mike Kenny Oval and UTS AFC hosting a Macquarie University side looking to bounce back in 2021.

As we move on from Round 1, the great match-ups continue with East Coast Eagles playing host to Manly Warringah Wolves at Kanebridge in Round 2, which will no doubt give an indication if the Eagles or the Wolves are the team to beat in 2021. In the ANZAC Round, North Shore Bombers host Southern Power (Saturday, Gore Hill) in what will be a fantastic match up of teams looking to go a few steps forward in 2021. Also, a great watch in Round 4 will be Inner West Magpies hosting East Coast Eagles in a rematch from last year preliminary final where the Magpies caused the upset and moved onto the Grand Final.
