West Coast will begin the 2022 AFLW season with a three-week stint at home, starting with a showdown against reigning premiers Brisbane on Sunday, January 9 at 5:10 (AWST) at Mineral Resources Park.

It will then be a six-day turnaround for the Eagles, before their inaugural match under lights against Gold Coast Suns, who will be back for revenge after a one-point loss to West Coast last season.

Then the Eagles are set to take on the Adelaide Crows at Mineral Resources Park on Sunday, January 23, before packing their bags for a two-week stint on the road in Melbourne.

West Coast will play three matches in 14 days against St Kilda, Geelong and Collingwood, before returning home to host Richmond at Mineral Resources Park.

Round eight will be played at Optus Stadium, for an RAC Derby against Fremantle during Indigenous Round, and is set for a 6:10 (AWST) night start on Saturday, February 26.

West Coast will then clash with the Western Bulldogs – who the Eagles famously beat for their first-ever win in round four, 2020 – at Mineral Resources Park, with a time and date yet to be confirmed.

Round 10 will be announced later this month.

Coach Michael Prior is pleased with the fixture.

"Really happy with the fixtures, we're really looking forward to the season getting underway," he said.

"And what better way to challenge ourselves and what we've learnt over the pre-season, coming up against the reigning premiers, Brisbane.

"It will be a great challenge for our girls and one we're really looking forward to.

"We were potentially going to be playing some home games early, which has come to fruition, so three home games to start off with, and then a couple of weeks away.

"We had already spoken to our group about that possibility, and they're excited to get away as a group and really take on the challenge.

"It's a great bonding experience for our girls, and the girls' employees have been fantastic with the time off that's required to play those games.

"The theme over the course of any season is that we want to see improvement within the team and individuals as well, so we look forward to that challenge.

"We've put in an enormous amount of work over the pre-season, and hopefully we can improve on what we've done in the past."
