The first AFLW semi-final pits Carlton and Fremantle against one another. The match will begin at 2:45pm (AEDT) on Saturday, March 23, and will be played at Princes Park.

This is The Roar’s ultimate guide to the first AFLW semi-final, with key information, squads and a broadcast guide.

Carlton finished first in Conference B, with a 4-3 record. They’re up against Fremantle who, despite finishing second in Conference A, dominated with a 6-1 record.

Given these teams didn’t play each other during the home-and-away season, the game could go either way.

How to watch the game on TV
There a couple of options available if you want to watch the match on television. Fox Footy (504) will have the semi-final live from 2:30pm (AEDT), with their coverage featuring no adbreaks during play. You’ll need a valid Foxtel TV subscription complete with the sports package if you want to watch Fox Footy.

You will be able to catch the game on free-to-air television as well, however. Channel Seven will broadcast the game live in Melbourne and Perth, whereas Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane will need to tune into 7mate. Check your local listings if you’re in another area.
