THE double-header is back this weekend.

Carlton fans venturing to Marvel Stadium on Sunday will be able to see not only the AFL side in action, with the Northern Blues to partake in a curtain raiser.

Starting from 11:50am, the Blues will look to build on last week’s big win over North Melbourne when they take on Collingwood.

The match will be the first of two consecutive curtain raisers to Carlton’s AFL games in 2019.

Excitingly, the game will also be broadcast on Channel 7 in Victoria for those who can’t get to the game on the weekend.

Gates three, four, five, eight and nine will be open from 11:30am.

VFL memberships will not grant entry to Sunday’s contest: for admission to Marvel Stadium, fans will need a valid ticket or membership for the AFL game to gain entry.
