Kyabram will host VFL side Bendigo Gold in a practice match on Good Friday.
The twilight match will start at 6pm at Kyabram Recreation Reserve and is the Bombers’ final hitout before round one of the Goulburn Valley Football League season.
Kyabram coach David Williams said the match was confirmed last week.
‘‘It’ll be great for the players to have a hitout against quality opposition,’’ he said.
‘‘The side should be at full strength. We might rotate some of the reserves and younger players through the four quarters.’’
Bendigo will run a football clinic with 25 of its players before the match.
The Bombers do not play a home game until round three, meaning the practice match will be a welcome financial boost for the club before the season starts.
Kyabram will also host practice matches against Pascoe Vale on March 16 and Eaglehawk on March 23.
And in a change to the draw, round 16 will see Echuca host Kyabram on Sunday afternoon after the Murray Bombers earlier agreed to play the Bombers on Saturday night in round three.
