2020 Optus WAFL Premiership Season fixture

The Optus WAFL Premiership Season fixtures have been finalised in a condensed format for 2020, seeing a traditional Fremantle Derby open the season on July 18 with no restriction on crowds.

Other Round 1 games include Subiaco unveiling their Premiership flag at home against Claremont, Swan Districts will host West Perth and Peel Thunder at home against Perth.

The nine-round home-and-away season will be followed by a three-week finals series, with the WAFL Grand Final scheduled to be played on the Sunday, October 4.

Teams will play each other once across nine-rounds and each have a bye.

All fixtures from round one will allow for full capacity crowds at WAFL grounds, with restrictions due to be lifted by the State Government, seeing live and local footy return to WA.

WAFC Executive Manager – WAFL & Football Operations Scott Baker said the lifting of restrictions on crowds and the even nature of the fixture paved the way for an exciting season of WAFL football.

“Clubs will play each other only once, making the fixture even across the nine-rounds of competition,” he said.

“Beginning the season with a number of blockbuster games and opening venues at full capacity will be very exciting.”

“I encourage everyone to get down to a WAFL game with their family and friends, connect with their club, and show their support for grassroots footy.”

WAFL pre-season games will be played on July 11.
