It's Cats and Dogs in prime-time for the Saints, with the AFL this morning confirming the fixture for Rounds 9 and 10.

St Kilda will open Round 9 against Geelong under Friday night lights on 14 May, before moving to the Saturday night stage the following week to square off against the Western Bulldogs on 22 May.

Both matches will be held at Marvel Stadium and will be broadcast live-and-free on Channel 7.

Round 10 against the Bulldogs is an away game for the Saints.

Following its Anzac Day clash at Adelaide Oval this Sunday, St Kilda will face three of its next four matches at Marvel Stadium, with Round 8 against Gold Coast the club's third interstate trip from the opening two months of the season.

Ticketing information for both games will be communicated in due course.

The AFL plans on releasing the fixture for Rounds 11 and 12 next week, followed by – subject to any COVID-related setbacks – a minimum four-week block to provide further certainty for clubs and fans.
