AFL history was made this weekend as the first round of AFL Women’s was played. The eight week season began on Friday night with Carlton taking on Collingwood at Ikon Park.

Carlton dominated the game and took out the inaugural match with a convincing win. The final scores were 7-4-46, 1-5-11.

The ground was filled to capacity and thousands of fans turned away at the gate.

Adelaide were the victors against Greater Western Sydney. The Western Bulldogs won against Fremantle and the Brisbane Lions defeated Melbourne.

Over 50,000 people attended the four games, with around 25,000 attending the Carlton versus Collingwood match.
