We are a month away from the second women's match for 2015 between the Demons and the Bulldogs.

The match will be played from approx. 12.30pm on Sunday, 16th August as a curtain-raiser to the men's match at Etihad Stadium (Docklands).

Both sides are permitted to de-list up to six players each prior to the mid-season mini-draft that will take place next Wednesday, 22nd July.

Website GirlsPlayFooty.com is this week listing some of the players that could get drafted next Wednesday.

Article Two: http://www.girlsplayfooty.com/2015/07/countdown-to-mini-draft-part-two.html


Melbourne must pick at least one player, after Cecilia McIntosh sustained a serious knee injury on the MCG during the 1st exhibition game of 2015, which rules her out until season 2016.

She has also been filming her road to recovery from that ACL injury.
GRAPHIC VISION WARNING: Vision contains medical procedures.





The Demons will also be hosting an All-Girls AusKick Clinic on Saturday, 15th August.
It will be from 10am at Gosch's Paddock, is FREE and will feature all of Melbourne's women's team.

I'm really looking forward to this, the girls always put on a good show. It's great that it's getting bigger every year, this time with two matches and channel seven actually broadcasting one

Plus our women's team is awesome usually against the bulldogs one

Do home and Away members still need to buy a ticket to the women's match? Also is that price available at the gate or only via the website?

From my reading of the MFC website, Home and Away members should already be covered. The discount applies before 5pm Wednesday via the club's website. If in doubt, I'd suggest emailing the MFC directly.
