The AFL will announce this afternoon that AFL football will be played on Good Friday for the first time in 2015. The most likely clash will be between North Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs, but the AFL is not expected to announce the details today.

It is also believed there will be an interstate clash as well, either in Adelaide or Sydney.

The Bulldogs and North Melbourne have been lobbying the AFL for some time for their own blockbuster clash. Carlton has also been keen to play on Good Friday.

However, the game will take place on April 3, and would be the second match of the 2015 season, and the AFL is keen for Carlton to play Richmond on the Thursday night.
