Subiaco 2018 Fixture Revealed

Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 6:30 PM

Subiaco’s 2018 fixture has been released with the WAFL confirming the opponents and rounds for the upcoming season.

The shortened fixture will see all teams play 18 games split across 21 games with three byes. The season will start on Easter weekend, the last weekend in March and conclude on the last weekend in August. Finals will run throughout September with the WAFL Grand Final set to be held on the weekend of September 22 and 23.
Subiaco’s 2018 season will start with its annual marquee Good Friday fixture as the Lions battle with East Perth in round one of the WAFL season. With former Lions Liam Ryan and Brayden Ainsworth drafted to West Coast, this could be a case of taking on two familiar foes, likely adding a bit more spice to this already blockbuster match. Subiaco emphatically defeated East Perth in last year’s Good Friday match and the co-tenant rivals will be looking to making amends in 2018.

Subiaco fans will get a healthy dose of their team in home games at the start of the season with Subiaco to play four home games in the first four rounds. After East Perth fixture in round one, Subiaco play Swan Districts at home in round three, Claremont at home in round four and West Perth at home in round six.

This means that across the last 15 rounds of the year, Subiaco will have just six home games, meaning that Jarrod Schofield and his team will likely need to be winning away from home to secure their spot in the top five next year. 
Subiaco faces a potential big fortnight in July with home games against fellow top three teams from last year Peel and South Fremantle in round 14 and round 15. For the second year in a row Subiaco will host a NAIDOC round fixture with the Round 14 match will Peel to fall on NAIDOC round.
Subiaco will play Swans for a second time at home in round 18 before finishing their home games with a date with Perth in round 21.

Subiaco’s byes will see the team get rest earlier in the season with a bye in round five, the state game to be held two weeks later on May 12th, a second club bye over the WA Day weekend in round nine before the Lions have their last bye in round 16.

Subiaco plays all teams twice, once home and away, with the exception of Swans who they play three times, twice at home and West Perth, three times, twice up at Arena Joondalup.
Final dates and times of all games along with the broadcast schedule will be confirmed by the WAFL at a later date.
We encourage all fans to get their club membership today and reengage with Subiaco for 2018. A pride membership will include gate entry to all nine Subiaco home games at Leederville Oval.
