Richmond will play a bumper 14 games at the MCG as part of the Club's 2022 fixture, announced by the AFL today.

Most notably, Richmond will host Essendon in Dreamtime at the 'G, the first Dreamtime clash between the teams in Melbourne since 2019.

Dreamtime at the 'G is a platform for the Club to strengthen connections and celebrate Indigenous culture at a national level. In the past 10 years, 772,000 have attended the game and over 10 million people have watched on TV.

The 2021 instalment promises to be one of the most highly anticipated Dreamtime's since its emergence as a marquee AFL fixture, given the three-year absence from the MCG and the Bombers' rise to finals football in 2021.

Richmond will also host early-season home blockbusters against last year's grand finalists, the Western Bulldogs (Saturday night- Round 4) and Melbourne (Sunday night- Round 6).

The Round 6 Anzac Day Eve clash with the Demons is sure to attract a massive crowd, given the two teams are the AFL's most recent premiers, and the occasion a prominent night on the AFL calendar.

As announced last week, Richmond will again play Carlton in a massive Thursday Night Round 1 clash. The Tiger Army will also be treated to a home Saturday afternoon match against Collingwood at the MCG in Round 8.

Richmond will return to Friday night football against West Coast at Optus Stadium in Round 7, broadcast live on Channel 7. 

The Tigers are also on the road in Round 5, where they will meet Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.

Richmond will play Sunday afternoon clashes in Melbourne against GWS (Round 2) and St Kilda (Round 3).

The Round 10-23 fixture will remain floating, with exact dates and times to be added to the matchups and fixtures that were announced today.

Richmond will play Essendon, Hawthorn, West Coast, Carlton and Port Adelaide twice in 2022, while the Club will have its Bye in Round 12, the weekend of June 3.
