Victorian AFL fans will be salivating at the prospect of seeing their teams play in the flesh after round one of the AFL 2022 season fixture was released on Saturday.

All 10 Victorian teams will play against each other in Melbourne, allowing supporters a chance to watch their team after COVID-19 restrictions have marred the last two seasons.

The AFL season will start on Wednesday March 16 with a rematch of the 2021 Grand Final between Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs.

"The AFLW and AFL Footy Festival in Victoria will give all footy fans from metro and regional Victoria, and those travelling from interstate, an opportunity to come to a game and see their AFLW and AFL teams across a 10-day period," AFL chief executive officer Gillon McLachlan said. "The first bounce of the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership Season will take place on March 16 when reigning Premiers, Melbourne, host the Western Bulldogs at the MCG. It will be the first time since 2000 that the season starts on a Wednesday night."

The rest of the 2022 AFL Premiership season fixture will be announced in the coming week.
