AFLW set for a GIANT return to Manuka Oval
THE AFL is pleased to announce the fixture for Round Six of the 2021 NAB AFL Women’s Competition which will see the GWS GIANTS return to Canberra for the first time since 2019.
After no AFL or AFLW action in the nation’s capital in 2020, the GIANTS’ AFLW side will return to Manuka Oval on Saturday, March 6.
AFL General Manager Women’s Football Nicole Livingstone said the league would continue to take the advice of governments and health officials and work closely with each stakeholder across the competition as it worked through fixtures for upcoming rounds.
“We will continue to remain adaptable as we listen to and work closely with each stakeholder to ensure the best possible outcome for everyone in the game,” Livingstone said.
“While COVID-19 continues to impact the community, the health and welfare of our players and the community remains the priority and we remain committed to delivering a full season in a safe manner led by respective governments, public health officials and medical experts.
“The round six fixture will see the league continue to best manage the risks around COVID by minimising travel where possible and ensuring minimal disruption for the competition as we navigate the 2021 season.”
All 2021 NAB AFL Women’s Competition matches will be broadcast live on the Seven Network, FOX FOOTY, Kayo, and via the AFL Live Official App, thanks to Telstra. Matches will also be streamed live via womens.afl and the AFLW Live Official App.
