Hawthorn's 2024 AFLW fixture has been released, with the Hawks set to face four new teams, host four games in Frankston, play at two new venues and play in two themed rounds, with one of those themed rounds coming in Cairns.

Check out Hawthorn's fixture by the numbers below.

4 new teams

The Hawks will play four new teams for the first time in their AFLW history this season, with three of those first-time clashes coming in the first four rounds of the season.

First up, Hawthorn hosts Carlton in Week 1 at Kinetic Stadium, with the game taking place on Sunday 1 September at 1.05pm. 

The Hawks then face Collingwood and Adelaide away in Weeks 2 and 3 before hosting Gold Coast at Kinetic Stadium in Week 6.


4 games in Frankston  

Hawthorn will again play four home games in front of its Frankston faithful this season, beginning with a big clash against the Blues in Week 1.

Three further matches follow in Weeks 6, 7 and 8 against Gold Coast, West Coast and GWS.

Hawthorn's clash with the Eagles will also form part of the AFLW's Pride celebrations.

2 new venues

For the first time in Hawthorn's AFLW history, the team will play games at Victoria Park and Unley Oval.

The Hawks travel to Victoria Park in Week 2 to face Collingwood and Unley Oval the following week to go head-to-head with the Crows.

2 themed rounds 

The AFLW's Pride Week will take place during Week 7 of the 2024 season, with Indigenous Week to follow in Weeks 9 and 10.

Hawthorn will take on West Coast in Pride Week at Kinetic Stadium and host Melbourne at Cazalys Stadium in Week 9 in its home Indigenous fixture.

The Hawks will then face Richmond at the Swinburne Centre to round out the celebrations the following week.  

1 game in Cairns 

For the second season in a row, the Hawks will host a home game in Cairns. 

Excitingly, this will remain the case for the next three seasons, with Hawthorn, AFL Cairns and the Queensland Government partnering together to continue to bring AFLW to the northern region. 

This season, Hawthorn hosts Melbourne at Cazalys Stadium on Thursday 24 October to open the AFLW's Indigenous Week.
