Essflix fixture reveal 2019 Browse through Essflix for the Bomber's 2019 fixture.

Essendon’s fixture for the 2019 season has been announced and we’ve identified some of the biggest games for fans to look forward to.

ROUND FIVE VS NORTH MELBOURNE
Marvel Stadium

Good Friday, April 19
4.20pm

The Bombers will play on Good Friday for the first time next year when they face the Kangaroos at Marvel Stadium on April 19.

After the sides played out a high-scoring thriller in their only clash in 2018, with the Bombers coming out on top in what was one of the league’s best games of the year.

Both clubs worked hard to add quality to their squad in the NAB AFL Trade Period, so fans can expect another great display of football in front of what is sure to be a packed house.

 

ROUND SIX VS COLLINGWOOD
MCG

ANZAC Day, Thursday, April 25
3.20pm

Our traditional ANZAC Day clash against bitter rival Collingwood falls on a Thursday this year, just six days after the match against North Melbourne.

The Bombers will be out to atone for a disappointing result in this year’s edition of the famous game.

This time it will be Essendon’s home game, with a loud and proud crowd set to fill the stands for the 25th instalment of the clash.

There is no bigger home and away game on the league’s calendar.

 

ROUND SEVEN VS GEELONG
MCG

Sunday, May 5
3.20pm

That’s right, three in a row! The fourth edition of the Country Game completes a trifecta of blockbusters in the first half of the season, with the Bombers looking to make it three wins on the trot over Geelong in the annual match.

This year’s Country Game was the start of Essendon’s impressive resurgence. Prior to the match, the Bombers were stranded on two wins from eight games, but a blistering start saw them comfortably account for the Cats to kick off their journey back up the ladder.

There will be plenty of reasons for fans not to miss out on the action both on and off the field, with the Powercor Country Festival taking place yet again outside the MCG.

 

ROUND 10 VS RICHMOND
MCG
Saturday, May 25
7.25pm

Since the very first Dreamtime at the ‘G match in 2005, the traditional fixture between Essendon and Richmond has always one of the highlights of the season – and 2019’s clash will be no exception.

The fixture, which falls within Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round, provides an important chance for all people to truly celebrate the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians not just to our sport, but to the country as a whole.

The enthralling pre-game entertainment is sure to put you in the mood before what will be an exciting game, with both sides entering the season with a point to prove after falling short this year.
