The Western Bulldogs will play a home game in Cairns

THE Western Bulldogs are heading back to Cairns in 2017.
The premiers will play a “home” game against the Gold Coast Suns at Cazalys Stadium for a fourth straight year.
The Round 18 match will be held on Saturday, July 22. The club is believed to make around $500,000 out of the Far North Queensland venture.
Western Bulldogs chief executive Gary Kent said the Dogs were keen to keep its footprint in North Queensland.
“We are pleased to return to Cairns for the fourth consecutive year, for what has become a much-anticipated match in our fixture,” Kent said.
Our fans have shown great support for this match in the past, and we hope to see that continue next season.”
The AFL, Queensland Government, through Tourism and Events Queensland, Cairns Regional Council and AFL Cairns have struck a one-year deal.
The 2016 match between the Suns and Bulldogs was held as a night fixture but next season’s game will return to the twilight timeslot.
