While a floating fixture is set to round out the final week of the 2022 AFLW season, the combatants for each of the seven games have been announced.

Following the announcement of the opening nine weeks of the schedule earlier this week, the AFL has stated that Round 10 will read as such:

Collingwood vs. Gold Coast SUNS at Victoria Park (VIC), TBC

Geelong Cats vs. GWS GIANTS at GMHBA Stadium (VIC), TBC

Melbourne vs. Carlton at Casey Fields (VIC), TBC

Kangaroos vs. West Coast Eagles at Arden Street (VIC), TBC

Richmond vs. Brisbane Lions at Swinburne Centre (VIC), TBC

St. Kilda vs. Adelaide Crows at RSEA Park (VIC), TBC

Western Bulldogs vs. Fremantle at Mars Stadium (VIC), TBC

Each of these contests will take place between Friday, March 11 and Sunday, March 13 and will coincide with the commencement of the 2022 AFL season.

Given it is uncertain which of the competition's 14-teams will be in finals contention entering the last weekend of the fixture, the dates and times of each match-up are set to be determined at a later date.

What is known is that each of Collingwood, Geelong, Melbourne, North Melbourne, Richmond, St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs will play hosts in an all-Victorian footy fest.

The season has been confirmed to start on January 7, with St Kilda and Richmond to kickstart the new season at Frankston's SkyBus Stadium.

Carlton and Collingwood have been moved from opening the new season to a Sunday afternoon slot in the second weekend of the new year as Ikon Park continues its redevelopment that has restricted its ability to host nighttime matches.

Complications due to COVID-19, such as Western Australia's border restrictions, have caused the league to delay the season. Originally scheduled for December, the 10-round season was pushed back by a month in order to prevent the WA teams potentially having to hub in the eastern states.

Essendon, Hawthorn, Port Adelaide, and Sydney will join at the end of 2022, bringing the league to an 18 team competition, while the 2021 season will remain with 14 teams. The AFLW no will longer use a conference system as it did previously, instead, all teams will be placed on the same ladder, with a finals series expected in March.

Reigning premiers Brisbane will kickstart their premiership defence against the Eagles in Western Australia on Sunday, January 9.

Rounds nine and 10 will remain floating fixtures to ease the AFLW's planning, which will follow Indigenous Round in Round 8, while Pride Round will be held in Round 3.
