How to watch today’s Fremantle vs Richmond AFL match: Livestream, TV channel, and start time | Goal.com Australia

Everything you need to know on how to watch today’s AFL game between Fremantle and Richmond- team news, livestream, TV channel, and start time.

Fremantle Dockers (9-5-2) have a strong opportunity of staying in the top four when they host the hapless Richmond Tigers (2-13) at Optus Stadium on Saturday night.

Fremantle pulled off a massive shock against Sydney, ending the Swans’ ten-game winning run. The exciting one-point victory propelled the Dockers to third place on the ladder, giving them a great opportunity to maintain their place in the top four and escape the logjam of teams between third and thirteenth.

The Dockers pulled off one of the season’s biggest surprises, defeating the Sydney Swans for only the second time in one of the best games of the 2024 season, propelling them to third place on the table.

Elsewhere, the Tigers are struggling, having won only two games all season. They just lost by 61 points to rivals Carlton and are likely the favourites for the wooden spoon.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch Fremantle vs Richmond in the AFL, plus plenty more.
