Canberra will kick off their 2019 NEAFL campaign against the Gold Coast SUNS at Ainslie's Alan Ray Oval, before travelling north to play Redland in Round 2.
Highly anticipated home games against the Sydney Swans, Gold Coast, Brisbane, GWS and 2018 premier Southport will round out a blockbuster draw for Canberra in 2019.
NEAFL Operations Manager, Luke Gatti, said the fixture aims to build on a successful 2018 season, which was the most competitive on record.
“Our goal for the 2019 NEAFL fixture was to enable our clubs to engage with their communities and supporters by adding extra Sunday games, and additional matches on Good Friday, Friday night and in Alice Springs,” he said.
All clubs will have three byes, with the NEAFL to retain a three-week finals series featuring the top six teams.
