The AFL has today released the dates and times for final round of the 2021 rebel VFLW home-and-away Premiership Season.
Collingwood, Geelong, Port Melbourne, Casey Demons and Essendon have guaranteed themselves a place in the 2021 rebel VFLW Finals with their dominant performances across the season. The final spot in the top six will come down to two matches – Western Bulldogs v Casey Demons and Southern Saints v North Melbourne. The Southern Saints currently sit in sixth position with a healthy percentage but a loss to North Melbourne and a win to the Western Bulldogs will see them swap in the race to the Finals.
The 2021 rebel VFLW Finals series will commence on Saturday July 3 with the Grand Final to be played on Sunday July 25. Elimination Finals will be played between 3rd v 6th and 4th v 5th. Qualifying Final will be between the top two sides with the winning side to earn a double-chance.
The AFL will continue to work with the Victorian State Government and Health Officials on the return of crowds at matches this weekend.
We acknowledge this remains a complicated and rapidly evolving situation but as a football industry we will band together to support each other. This is a reminder that we are all part of a broader society with a responsibility to make sure our community remains safe.
The AFL will continue to meet with all parties and plan for all scenarios acting on the advice from government, relevant health departments and medical experts. We will communicate any updates and provide advice in a timely manner.
The AFL would like to acknowledge the support of all industry stakeholders and the legion of fans and supporters for their patience during this time.
