I hope to get to more VFL games in 2024.

I used to go every single week and I used to love it. Going to all the local grounds, getting to know other regulars, and feeling more a part of the club.

^ that was the best part of going early to Vic Park back in the day, watching the reserves play and getting time to know those regulars around you. Some of the old timers would spin great yarns.

I remember going to Vic Park extremely early and watching the under 19’s.

Collingwood

Plays Twice: Brisbane Lions, Carlton, Essendon
Doesn’t Play: Box Hill Hawks, Gold Coast, GWS, Port Melbourne, Williamstown
Interstate Trips: NSW 1, Queensland 2
VFLW Double Headers: 5
AFL curtain raisers/closers: 0
Summary: Rivalry matches feature heavily on the Magpies’ fixture, with return games against both Carlton and Essendon, as well as preliminary finalist Brisbane Lions. Four away games and six of the first seven on the road to start the year means they must protect against a slow start that would have them chasing their tails. Three interstate trips (Brisbane, Southport, Sydney) loom as tests, but no games against premier Gold Coast (two years in a row), third-placed Box Hill Hawks and fifth-placed Williamstown, as well as likely big improver Port Melbourne, plus a game at Swinburne Centre – where they haven’t lost in the modern era – push the difficulty factor into the middle rungs. Still tougher than last year, however.
Difficulty Score: 478 (ranked 12th)

What the fixture is that? According to the one above which is consistent with the AFL / VFL website, the VFL Pies play 1 out of the first 7 matches at home, and only play 8 games at home in total out of 21 rounds (3 byes).
