Richmond's VFL side will begin its 2024 Smithy’s VFL campaign with an away trip against the Gold Coast Suns.

The Tigers will travel north to face the reigning VFL premiers at Heritage Bank Stadium on Saturday, March 23 from 11.05am.

The VFL announced their Round 1 fixture today, with Steve Morris' team to play the day before Richmond's AFL Round 2 twilight match against Port Adelaide at the MCG.

The remainder of the VFL fixture will be released next week, with all teams to play 18 matches across 21 rounds.

Richmond's practice match schedule will also be communicated once details are confirmed.
