How to watch Fremantle Dockers vs Geelong Cats AFL live and free

Posted: 27 July 2020 4:18 pm

Round 8 concludes with Fremantle hosting Geelong at Optus Stadium in Perth on Monday. This is how to watch.

SUMMARY: Dockers vs Cats is exclusive to Fox Footy. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Fremantle can continue the slow turnaround of their season when they host Geelong at Optus Stadium. The Dockers lost their first four matches of the year, but have won two of their past three and can jump further up the ladder with a win here.

Yet it won't be easy against a Geelong side that has its eyes on the upper reaches of the AFL ladder. The Cats' defeat to Collingwood last time out dropped them to ninth. But they can climb as high as third if they overcome Freo on Monday night.

When is Fremantle vs Geelong?

The first bounce is at 6:10pm local time (8:10pm AEST) on Monday 27 July at Optus Stadium in Perth.

It is worth checking your local guides whenever you want to catch an AFL broadcast. That's because Channel 7 and Foxtel share the broadcast rights and the matches shown vary from state to state.

This match is live into Western Australia on free-to-air TV, so Freo fans are covered with that option. But for anyone else around the country keen to tune in you need a subscription service.

Who will win Dockers vs Cats?

Just when it looked like the Dockers were set for a very long season, they reeled off wins over Adelaide and St Kilda. They were swamped by a strong West Coast team last weekend, but are showing signs of growth under new coach Justin Longmuir.

But the Cats have too much on the line to let this match slip through their fingers. On a congested ladder, Geelong need these four points to jump back into the all-important top four. It might be close early, but we think they will ultimately win this one comfortably enough.
