FOUR home games at GMHBA Stadium, three interstate trips and games at Ballarat and Warrnambool feature in Geelong’s AFLW Season 7 fixture.

The Cats will begin their fifth campaign against one of the two teams they beat in Season 6, Richmond, at home on August 28.

He also has GMHBA Stadium matches against Collingwood and St Kilda in Round 3 and 5, respectively.

However, with the venue being used for the T20 Cricket World Cup in mid-October, Geelong’s next home game will not take place until the final encounter with competition newcomer Sydney.

His fifth “home” game is against West Coast at IKON Park in Carlton.

The Cats travel to Ballarat in the sixth round for a meeting with the Western Bulldogs at Mars Stadium.

The following week he met expansion team Essendon and first Cat Sophie van de Heuvel in the first AFLW match to play Warrnambool at the recently redeveloped Reid Oval.

Geelong’s interstate assignments are against Fremantle, North Melbourne in Launceston and Adelaide (rounds 2, 4 and 9).

“The Season 7 game is going to provide our members and supporters with a number of opportunities to rally behind the team,” CEO Steve Hocking said.

“In addition, our travel program will allow a number of our interstate members and supporters to get along with football and see the Cats in action in their home countries.”

The Cats won’t face new clubs Port Adelaide and Hawthorn, while a first-ever meeting of the season with Melbourne will have to wait until 2023.
