The AFL has this afternoon confirmed the Game Changers’ Round 3 fixture against Western Bulldogs on Sunday will not proceed as planned due to multiple Bulldogs players entering AFL Health and Safety Protocols.

Carlton will instead travel to Queensland to take on the Brisbane Lions at Metricon Stadium on Tuesday night at 7:10pm AEDT (6:10pm local).

Carlton General Manager of Women’s Football Brett Munro says the Club will continue to be flexible with fixture arrangements moving forward.

“It is unfortunate to have games rescheduled two weeks in a row, however our players and coaches have been outstanding in handling change so far this season and this week is no different,” Munro said.

“The traditional Pride Game against the Bulldogs against Whitten Oval is a special fixture we look forward to every year, however we are pleased to still be able to play in Pride Round against the Lions.

“Pulling on our Pride Guernsey on Tuesday night and representing the LGBTIQA+ community will still hold huge significance for our playing group and entire football club.

“This is also a great result for our Queensland fans after having our original scheduled match against the Lions cancelled last week.

“We will continue to be flexible to work with the AFL on fixture arrangements moving forward and can’t wait to play footy under the Tuesday night lights.”

Those with tickets to the originally scheduled Western Bulldogs vs Carlton match will automatically receive a refund from Ticketmaster. No action is required from the ticket purchaser.
