Sunday will mark the Northern Bullants’ triumphant return to the VFL when it kicks off its season at Preston City Oval against Williamstown at 1pm.

The match will be the club’s official return as a standalone club after spending the best part of two decades aligned with AFL club Carlton.

It will also be the club’s first match under the Northern Bullants banner since the end of 2011, when it was rebranded as the Northern Blues.

Members and supporters are invited to join the club in celebrating its past and beginning its next chapter as a club representing greater Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

Tickets to Sunday’s President’s Lunch are still available. At just $65 per head, you can hear from guest speaker Kane Lambert (Richmond’s triple premiership player and a former Northern Bullant) and senior coach Josh Fraser before the club’s huge match against another of the VFL’s most respected standalone clubs.

To buy your tickets to the President’s Lunch, please email [email protected] now.

Memberships and merchandise will also be on sale, so be sure to get involved, find a seat in the grandstand or stand behind the goals as the Bullants return to where they belong in the club’s famous red and white jumper.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Further match day details will be communicated shortly.
