The AFL has today confirmed an updated Round 19 fixture with the Sydney Swans now set to face Fremantle at Metricon Stadium on Sunday, July 25 at 12:30pm.

The fixture was originally scheduled to be played at Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium but has been relocated due to the team’s short notice move from Melbourne to Brisbane out of caution to the unfolding COVID-19 situation in Victoria last week.

Round 19
Sydney Swans v Fremantle
Sunday, July 25. 12:30pm.
Metricon Stadium.

Please note: Details on member match access and ticketing will be communicated to Sydney Swans members via email as soon as confirmed.

Round 19 will also see the club celebrate its 21-year partnership with major charity partner Redkite. Members and fans will be given plenty of opportunities to show children with cancer that they are on their team.

More information around Red Day will be communicated this week.


The AFL has also confirmed Melbourne and Western Bulldogs has been brought forward from round 20 to this Saturday night as one of three fixture changes for round 19. 

The Demons will tackle the Dogs at the MCG, while two other games planned for next week will also shift. The Brisbane-Gold Coast QClash will take place on Saturday afternoon at the Gabba (3.10pm) before Adelaide hosts Hawthorn later that day at Adelaide Oval (5.40pm ACST, 6.10pm AEST)

Carlton's clash with North Melbourne scheduled for Sunday has been swapped and will now take place at Marvel Stadium on Saturday afternoon at 1.45pm EST. 

Sydney, Greater Western Sydney and Essendon remain in Queensland given the COVID-19 situations in Victoria and New South Wales with the Bombers-Giants game to be played on Sunday at a venue and time yet to be determined. 

Port Adelaide's game against Collingwood at Adelaide Oval will proceed on Friday night at 7.10pm local time, giving the Pies time to fly out of South Australia that night. 

The West Coast-St Kilda game has been moved forward from the Saturday night timeslot into a 2.35pm (4.35pm EST) start.
