Essendon is bound for the Gold Coast, coming up against North Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs at Metricon Stadium in rounds six and seven.
The AFL today announced a revised fixture for the next two rounds, which will see all Victorian teams move to interstate hubs in Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia.
The Bombers will face the Kangaroos at 7:40pm AEST on Saturday, July 11 and the Western Bulldogs at 7:50pm AEST on Friday, July 17.
Both games will be broadcast live on Channel Seven.
QLD based members will be contacted via email next week regarding access to tickets for matches at Metricon Stadium. The club is awaiting further details. #MightyBombers ????— Essendon Membership (@EFC_Membership) July 3, 2020
Carlton, Richmond and St Kilda will join the Bombers, Kangaroos and Bulldogs in Queensland.
The AFL needed to get the 10 Victorian clubs out of that state due to a worrying spike in the COVID-19 infection rate, a situation which has seen other states either ban those clubs from entry or place the strictest of regulations around their entry.
There is a belief among the Victorian clubs that they will not be returning for at least a month, that rounds eight and nine, at a minimum, will be added to their time away from Melbourne.
