While still consisting of seven rounds, the 2019 fixture is different
Rather than playing each team once, the competition will be split into two conferences consisting of five teams with the GIANTS part of Conference B alongside Brisbane, Collingwood, Carlton
The GIANTS will play each team in their conference once before playing Melbourne, Adelaide and North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos from Conference A.

Round five will see the Melbourne Demons return to Blacktown International SportsPark to face the GIANTS on Sunday, March 3.
The GIANTS will then play Adelaide in the penultimate round of the season at Unley Oval on Sunday, March 10 before the GIANTS’ AFLW home and away season concludes with a blockbuster Friday night clash against new team Geelong at UNSW Canberra Oval on Friday, March 15.
“Last year we saw more than 5,000 Sydneysiders at Drummoyne Oval on a Friday night to support our AFL Women’s team, so we’re thrilled to be able to play at an iconic inner-city venue in that timeslot again,”
“We have a great balance across the fixture with two home games in our Western Sydney heartland at Blacktown as well as a Friday night blockbuster for our Canberra fans, who we know always turn out in droves.
“We’re proud to be the only team to represent NSW and the ACT in the national AFLW competition and look forward to welcoming our members and fans, as well as many more new faces, in 2019, across our four home games.”
