^This link is now broken but the broadcast details that were in that document don't match up with the fixture on the Saints website now:

...EVERY game is different from the original announcement in terms of what Ch7 and Fox would be the host broadcasters for. And the Saints had the original details on their website when the fixture was announced.

So has the graphic designer messed up, or are these changes legit? I'm leaning towards the former until I've seen this info replicated elsewhere. Richmond's fixture, for example, still has the original details:

And the Round 4 game between Collingwood and Melbourne will be moved from Victoria Park to Marvel Stadium to form a double-header with the SOO bushfire appeal. Haven't seen an official start time for it yet, hopefully just a very small gap between the two matches.

To follow up: the Broadcast Guide for the first 3 Rounds is now on the AFLW website, suggesting that St Kilda's graphic designer did indeed have a mare. Nevertheless it does itself contain what I'm sure are several errors too, such as: the Western Derby allocated just a 90min slot on 7mate in Melbourne, and; Adelaide and Perth only getting two FTA games in Round 3.

I was hoping for 6.05pm and 8.10pm, with quarters in the SoO match going for 25 minutes max and therefore not finishing too late. A 2hr 10min gap between start times is nevertheless a fraction tighter than the Showgrounds and Gabba double-headers but, of course, those games are on a Saturday and easier to arrive early for.

Tickets (adults and concession $3, kids free) for the Eagles-Dockers game, also known as the RAC Derby (first AFLW H&A game with its own title, naming rights sponsor and logo I reckon), go on sale via Ticketmaster today. Half-hour pre-sale window from 9am for West Coast and Fremantle AFLW members, with access for the general public from 9.30am.

WA football will come together for the inaugural RAC Derby in the NAB AFLW competition, which will raise further funds in support of relief and recovery efforts for the devastating Australian bushfires.

All proceeds from ticket sales for the historic clash on Saturday, February 15 at Optus Stadium will go towards relief efforts and provide emergency assistance on the ground through the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

Admission will include free public transport, with the State Government waiving costs in support of the event, while Ticketmaster has waived all fees and Optus Stadium has varied the contracted hiring terms.
