The Northern Bullants Football Club are pleased to confirm the club has officially accepted a formal license to join the newly formed VFL/Second Tier competition in 2021.

The AFL sent license offers to clubs from the Victorian Football League and North East Australian Football League across Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, with a mandate for clubs to confirm their participation.

Northern Bullants President, Stephen Papal said: “We are delighted to confirm the Ants are back.

Announced today that Port Melbourne will be fielding a team in VFLW in 2021 taking over the license that had belonged to Richmond.

As part of this an agreement has been reached between Port Melbourne and Richmond that Richmond AFLW players not playing that week will be able to play for Port Melbourne similar to agreement that Williamstown and Adelaide Crows had this year before season was derailed by Covid.

Their home games will be played at North Port Oval.

The season will start in Early February inline with AFLW and NAB League Girls Competitions.

With the AFL expected to announce the new competition in the next fortnight its time for the ever popular topic of Port Melbourne player movements to return.

A big loss to begin with - Jarryd Blair is off. Had a great season with Port and probably played his best footy during the finals. Will definetely be missed as he departs to fulfill some coaching duties (I believe he is coaching Wonthagi Magpies).
