The game will take place on Friday, February 28.
It's set to get underway at 7.50pm (AEDT), with the match coming after an AFLW game between Collingwood and Melbourne at the same venue.

Keen observers will note this places the clash on the same weekend as the second round of Marsh Community Series pre-season fixtures.

Players taking part in the bushfire game will sit out that week for their clubs, which may not please their coaches, though there has been widespread support among the players for the match.

Selection


Nat Fyfe, Patrick Dangerfield and Dustin Martin have all been picked in the star-studded 27-man squads announced on Tuesday for next week’s return of State representative footy.
Richmond superstar Martin was the first player to confirm his involvement in next week’s bushfire relief match, announcing on Monday he will play for Victoria.

The Brownlow medallist and premiership star was the first player picked for the representative battle against the All-Stars on February 28 at Marvel Stadium.

Richmond and GWS are the clubs with the highest representation with both clubs to feature six players in the AFL’s first State of Origin game since 2008.

Martin, Tom Lynch, Bachar Houli and Trent Cotchin will fly the flag for Victoria, while Shane Edwards and Jack Riewoldt have been picked for the All Stars.

The Giants have five players in the Victorian squad (Jeremy Cameron, Toby Greene, Josh Kelly, Lachie Whitfield and Nick Haynes). Stephen Coniglio will represent the All Stars.

No idea what to expect here. Don't want to see anyone get injured playing in a charity match but don't want to see a 50% AFLX style intensity either.

Bit of bias from Longmire picking mills ahead of Zach Williams
I've been thinking a bit of bias against Rampe, B&F Winner last year. Mills came 5th though ahead of Heeney and Aliir.

What the hell is that logo on All Stars jumper? Something from a pyramid marketer?
