Let's get behind our local team
Season 2017 was meant to be a trial. A few games of football between some of the glamour sides of the AFL. A chance for some of the suburban or regional ovals to get a try-out before the real season starts in earnest. An opportunity for women to have a play. But wow weren't they wrong everybody loves a good game of footy, and why not women as well.

The 2017 AFL Womens series exceeded all expectations in terms of crowd numbers, media interest and folk heroes, and saw the Adelaide Crows come out on top as winners of the inaugural AFLW Championship after defeating the Brisbane Lions in a close tightly contested final. And following on from that success, the teams are all back again in 2018 for their second year, a year that promises even more than the first.

Held over seven weeks at the tail end of summer, which is a long way from being the most enjoyable football conditions, the 2018 AFLW season sees the Adelaide Crows play four home and three away games as they seek to defend their 2017 crown. Three of the home games this year will be at the historic Norwood Oval while the fourth home game will be held in Darwin, the AFLW Adelaide Crows second home. The full Adelaide Crows season is as follows:

3 February versus Brisbane Lions (Norwood Oval 645pm)
10 February versus Melbourne (away)
17 February versus Western Bulldogs (Norwood Oval 135pm)
25 February versus GWS Giants (away)
3 March versus Carlton (Norwood Oval 640pm)
9 March versus Fremantle (Darwin TIO Oval 535pm)
18 March versus Collingwood (away)

Following the completion of the home and away series, the top two teams will compete in the grand final in front of an engaging crowd and a large TV audience on 24th March at an oval chosen by the top team.

The Crows have retained much of their squad from 2017 and are ably led from the front by co-captains, Chelsea Randall and Erin Phillips. Erin, the star performer during the first AFLW season by scooping all the awards with league, player and club best and fairest awards, will be back again looking for another great season, while the fan's favourite forward 'Tex' Perkins will again be seeking to influence the big games where it matters most.
