AFL on Seven: Rounds 9 – 12

Seven has now confirmed programming for upcoming AFL matches across Rounds 9-12.

Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport Lewis Martin said, “This season’s epic adventure just continues to roll on with fans set to enjoy the biggest Festival of Footy they’ve ever seen. It kicks off tonight with a special Wednesday night clash that’s the first of four consecutive prime-time blockbusters on Seven – and things only hot up from there! Virtually every game will be an ‘eight-point’ match between genuine finals contenders, while fans will also have front-row seats to Live and free heavyweight battles that will shape the top-four race. This is one festival you don’t want to miss.”

The Bulldogs-Tigers grudge match kicks off at 7.00pm AEST on Channel 7 and 7mate, and will be followed by everyone’s favourite footy show, The Front Bar, where former Saints speedster Aussie Jones and AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan will join Andy, Mick and Sam at the special time of 9.30pm.

And that’s just the start of a huge week for footy fans on Seven, with tonight’s match kick-starting an unprecedented four straight nights of prime-time footy, all of them between teams with finals firmly on their minds:

• Melbourne v Port Adelaide on Thursday night at the Gabba
• Essendon v Brisbane Lions on Friday night at Metricon Stadium
• West Coast v Geelong on Saturday night at Optus Stadium.

The Festival powers on next week too, when Seven will broadcast four consecutive blockbusters across Rounds 10-11, starting with an enticing Thursday night encounter between two of 2020’s most-improved teams, Gold Coast and St Kilda, at Metricon Stadium on August 6.

That’s followed by three more headline match-ups that, again, will help shape this year’s finals race:
• Essendon v GWS Giants on Friday night at Metricon Stadium
• Brisbane Lions v Western Bulldogs on Saturday night at the Gabba
• West Coast Eagles v Carlton on Sunday at Optus Stadium.

And the must-see action just keeps on coming in Round 12 with a tantalising trifecta that’s highlighted by a Friday night showdown between two of this season’s premiership contenders, Geelong and Port Adelaide, at the Gabba on August 14.

The Festival then finishes with a bang with Fremantle v Carlton on the Saturday night at Optus Stadium, followed by St Kilda v Essendon at the Gabba on Sunday.

The Front Bar returns to Wednesday nights throughout the Festival of Footy, when Mick Molloy, Sam Pang and Andy Maher will assume their usual positions at the bar to celebrate the lighter side of footy and shout some of the game’s biggest stars a beer.

As always, viewers in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia will be able to watch every game involving their local AFL teams on Seven.

And post-match on Friday nights, Adam Cooney and Cam Luke will settle in on the Armchair Experts sofa, offering viewers their unique take on the big match.

  1. “As always, viewers in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia will be able to watch every game involving their local AFL teams on Seven”

    This is not right as the schedule shows that in Brisbane it is always on 7mate. We very rarely have AFL on 7.

  2. Outrageous! FTA in Melbourne only gets 2 games in Round 10 and the same in Round 11, then 3 games in Round 12. What happened to the sports anti-syphoning legislation to stop the payTV monopoly?

  3. The days of footy only on weekends are now over. Because of this Home and Away is airing on a different channel and Simpsons will only be on 7 Flix.
