BLUEBAGGERS will get their first look at next year’s Carlton side in the 2021 AFL Community Series.

The Blues will play two matches over a three-week period as part of the pre-season schedule, first facing Port Adelaide in week one followed by Brisbane in week three.

On Sunday 21 February, Carlton will make the trip to South Australia to face Port Adelaide in Whyalla at Bennett Oval with the first bounce at 5:10pm AEDT.

Sitting out the second week, the Blues will finish the Community Series on their home deck facing the Lions at Ikon Park on Saturday 6 March at 4:40pm AEDT.

With both their opponents finishing at the top end of the eight in 2020, the Blues get the opportunity to test their pre-season wares against the competition’s best.

Carlton will face Brisbane almost 12 months to the day since the two sides met in the 2020 Marsh Community Series, the last match Carlton played in front of home fans this year.

All 2021 AFL Community Series matches will be broadcast live on FOX FOOTY, Kayo and through the Official AFL LIVE App.
