Richmond’s 2024 AFL fixture has been confirmed, with fans set to benefit from two hat-tricks of MCG clashes (Round 1-3 and 7-9) in the opening parts of the season.
The Tigers will also come home with five straight games in Melbourne to end the campaign, in a fixture that includes home marquee Anzac Day Eve and Dreamtime clashes.
After heading to the Gold Coast in the new-look Opening Round, Richmond will meet Carlton at the MCG in the traditional Thursday night slot on March 14, followed by home Sunday twilight games against Port Adelaide and Sydney.
Both clashes will be held at the ‘G, as will all of Richmond’s home matches in 2024 except for the Round 22 game against St Kilda at Marvel Stadium.
Richmond will play the Saints twice this year, with the first clash to be at Norwood Oval as part of Gather Round.
The other five teams Richmond double-up against in 2024 are Gold Coast (Round 1 and 24), Carlton (2 and 16), Port Adelaide (3 and 19), Fremantle (8 and 17) and Hawthorn (14 and 23).
Richmond travels west to face West Coast in Round 5 before consecutive home matches at the MCG against Melbourne, Fremantle, and Western Bulldogs.
The Round 7 match against Melbourne on Anzac Day Eve will be an important chance to honour soldiers past and present for their sacrifices to Australia.
It will also be senior coach Adem Yze’s first match against the club he played 271 games for and was involved in a drought-breaking premiership as a senior assistant coach in 2021.
Richmond will play under Saturday night lights for four straight weeks across Rounds 9-12, including a trip to Brisbane, the 20th annual Dreamtime clash, and a road trip to Geelong.
The trip down the highway to face the Cats at GMHBA Stadium will be Richmond’s first match for premiership points at the venue since 2017.
Richmond will play a prime-time Thursday night fixture against Adelaide at Adelaide Oval on June 6, broadcast live on Channel 7 before hosting the Hawks in Round 14.
The Tigers will have their mid-season bye in Round 15, with timeslots for fixtures from Round 16-24 to be announced later next year.
Richmond will host Carlton (Round 16), GWS (18), St Kilda (22) and Gold Coast (24) in that period.
The Tigers will also travel to Perth and Adelaide to meet Fremantle (17) and Port Adelaide (19) in the final third of the year.
Richmond will face reigning premiers Collingwood in a marquee clash at the ‘G in Round 20. There are also clashes against North Melbourne (Marvel Stadium) and Hawthorn (MCG) in Rounds 21 and 23.
In Summary, Richmond will play 13 matches at the MCG and two at Marvel Stadium, Optus Stadium and Adelaide Oval, as well as fixtures at The Gabba, Norwood Oval, Heritage Bank Stadium and GMHBA Stadium.
Richmond has been scheduled for eight games on Channel 7 and six exclusively to FOX FOOTY as part of the fixtured 14 matches to start the year.
