THE GRAND Final rematch between Brisbane and Melbourne will take place on the Saturday night of round 10, with dates and times now locked in for Pride Round.

The Lions and Dees will lock horns in a clash that could decide the order of the top four - and the winner of the $1 million prize for the McClelland Trophy - at Brighton Homes Arena at 6.05pm AEST.

Fellow top-four sides North Melbourne (playing Western Bulldogs at Whitten Oval) and Adelaide (West Coast at Mineral Resources Park) should have a six or seven-day break ahead of finals, playing on Saturday afternoon.

The last finals spot could be up for grabs when Collingwood hosts Richmond at Victoria Park on Sunday afternoon.

Hawthorn will travel down to GMHBA Stadium to take on Geelong in the Saturday twilight slot.

Two big improvers in 2023, Carlton and St Kilda, will open proceedings on Sunday, with Fremantle and Sydney facing off at Fremantle Oval to cap off the round of footy.

As previously announced, two current top-eight sides in Gold Coast and Essendon will open the round on Friday night at Great Barrier Reef Arena in Mackay.

The AFL also confirmed the blockbuster round nine clash between Adelaide and North Melbourne has been moved from Unley Oval to Norwood Oval due to "a surface redevelopment".


"The final round of the 2023 NAB AFLW season has been set up to provide a thrilling conclusion to the home and away season whilst also taking into consideration the potential number of days break for teams heading into the first week of finals," AFL head of broadcast operations and scheduling Josh Bowler said.

"On behalf of the AFL, I would like to thank the 18 clubs, players and the AFLPA, coaches, umpires, officials, broadcasters, venues, corporate partners, all state and territory governments, and of course the fans who have attended the season so far and watched at home."
