The 2023 Hostplus SANFL League Fixture has been release and the Bays will commence their season against Sturt on Saturday April 1.
Round 2 will see an Easter weekend blockbuster on April 7 when 2019 Grand Finalists Glenelg and Port Adelaide square off at the Bay from 4.40pm.
An intriguing Anzac Eve contest at Brighton Road between 2021 Grand Finalists, the Eagles and Glenelg, is another to mark on the calendar.
Glenelg will host Sturt in a King’s Birthday Holiday blockbuster on June 12.
In an innovative measure, First Nations Round will be held across two weekends, Rounds 11 and 12.
This will allow each SANFL club the opportunity to host a First Nation-themed match to recognise the enormous contribution Indigenous people make to Australian Football in South Australia.
Start times and match days for Rounds 11 to 18 will be confirmed later in the year, once the AFL finalises its full minor round fixture.
The 2023 Hostplus SANFL final series will be played over four weeks at Adelaide Oval, culminating in the 2023 Hostplus SANFL League Grand Final on Sunday September 24.
