Not only is footy back, we now have fixtures for rounds two to five of the AFL season.

First of all, Sunday games will kick off at 2.05pm AEST time.

Secondly, the initial rounds have been designed around traditional rivalries.

“To re-launch the season we have focused on scheduling blockbuster match-ups across these four weeks, particularly in the Thursday and Friday night primetime slots,” AFL general manager of clubs and broadcasting Travis Auld said.

Rounds six and seven are expected to be announced after round three.

Matches for the remainder of the season will mostly fall into the “now traditional” Thursday to Sunday structure.
