    This could be the best fixture we've ever had. A home game against a powerhouse Vic club on prime time in round 1 is something i've been waiting for for a very long time & now Good Friday! If we could get Good Friday as a home game, now that would be amazing!

    Essendon won’t play Good Friday fixture in 2020 as Western Bulldogs return for marquee game

    Essendon has been dumped from Good Friday football.

    The Herald Sun can reveal the Bombers have been removed from the 2020 game, with the Western Bulldogs reinstated in their place.

    North Melbourne will be handed a fourth consecutive Good Friday encounter when the AFL fixture is unveiled tomorrow.

    The Dogs’ return to the marquee slot, which lands on April 10 next year, comes three years after they played the Kangaroos in the inaugural clash in 2017.

    The Bulldogs won that riveting game by three points in front of a crowd of 42,814. But they were dumped for St Kilda in 2018 before the Bombers were brought in for 2019.

    The North-Saints game drew only 33,966 fans, while the Bombers’ thrashing of the Roos this year was witnessed by 48,278.

    Dogs president Peter Gordon lashed his club’s omission from Good Friday as recently as March this year, telling the Herald Sun the decision “defies logic”.

    “If you count local derbies as marquee games, there are really only three clubs that don’t have any — North Melbourne, St Kilda and the Bulldogs,” Gordon said.

    “Good Friday was a virgin opportunity to create a blockbuster marquee opportunity and it has been completely squandered for no rational reason at all.

    “I had some serious words to say to (AFL chief executive) Gillon McLachlan and (fixture boss) Travis Auld when we were first excluded from it, but I don’t think any arguments I can make to the AFL, no matter how rational, are going to be influential in what they choose to do with Good Friday.”

    Yet the Bulldogs are back for the game in a season that holds much promise for their supporters after a return to finals in 2019.

    The game aims to raise money for the Good Friday Appeal and Royal Children’s Hospital, with the appeal this year raising more than $18 million.

    Fans have got to come out and go to this match, or we will lose it again.

    A great start to the season playing Pies and then to top it off with the Good Friday game. Great for membership sales if we win that first game.

    The strong finish to the season has definitely helped us. Great first round fixture and now Good Friday. Awesome news for the club.

    Went last time and lost it. I wouldn't be surprised if the AFL kept rotating this one and let it be Norths little exclusive patch since they invented the concept of playing football on a public holiday (according to them)

    Actually about time we achieved some sustained success and became a powerhouse club.

    5 flags in the next 7 or 8 years with Bont at his peak would be a good start.

    Re: 2020 Fixture

    21 Goal run vs Essendon
    13 Goal run vs GWS
    Elim Final
    Trade for Bruce
    Trade for Keath
    Pick 13 for drafting
    Talented list kept together
    Round 1 on Friday night vs Collingwood (home game)
    Good Friday vs North (blockbuster)


    If you have the spare cash but refuse to buy a membership, and this last few months cant sway you into signing up, then please admit to yourself that you will never sign up. Outside of the EF result, we've had a great few months as a club and great news with Good Friday back.
