With the AFL fixture for the 2017 home and away season set to be released on Thursday morning AFL.com.au takes a look at some of the requests that would be on the wish list for the Swans.

More matches in Melbourne and big opponents at the SCG headline a list of requests.

What they'll want: The Swans hosted North Melbourne on Friday night this year and Hawthorn on a Thursday night, and they'll want more massive games at the SCG in those slots next year. A Friday night clash against Collingwood, Hawthorn or Geelong to kick off Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round would be a huge draw and almost guarantee a sellout in Sydney. More games in Melbourne are also on the wish list.

The game the fans will be looking for: The first Sydney Derby will be a monster after this year's fiery qualifying final between the Giants and the Swans, and the rivalry is only going to intensify.

The fixture for the 2017 NAB Challenge pre-season competition is also set to be revealed over the next week.
