WA's footy teams Fremantle Dockers and West Coast Eagles will start the next AFL season with a western derby.

Adelaide and Essendon will meet in the opening match of the 2013 AFL season on March 22, the league confirmed on Monday.

The Crows will host the Bombers in a Friday night match to kick off a round one split across two weekends.

Fremantle will host West Coast in a night game at Patersons Stadium on Saturday, March 23.

Richmond and Carlton will do battle a few days later in their now-traditional Thursday night contest at the MCG.

The full 2013 draw is expected to be released later this month.
