Strathmore Community Bank has regained the naming rights for what's shaping up to be another sterling season of Division One football.

With the Division moving from 12 teams down to 11, each side will play 16 games with two allocated byes.

With another fortnight to wait until a full suite of games in Round 1, Maribyrnong Park will commence their path back to the top flight the week prior against fellow newcomer and recently promoted Oak Park.

After making the last two grand finals, West Coburg will begin their redemption arc against Maribyrnong Park, while 2023 finalists Rupertswood and St Albans will face off at Salesian College.

Moonee Valley will begin their season against Oak Park, while Good Friday opponents are swapped with Craigieburn travelling to Shark Park to face Hillside and Roxburgh Park hosting Keilor Park.

Round 2 will again see Maribyrnong Park host a game under lights at Monk Oval, this time against Moonee Valley at 7pm.

Tullamarine will kick their season off in Round 2 against Oak Park before making their long-awaited return to Leo Dineen Reserve in an ANZAC Day clash with Keilor Park in Round 3.

Ground renovations will see Craigieburn take an early bye and play the majority of its early season games away from DS Aitken Reserve, with their first home game taking place in Round 5 against Rupertswood.

Next year's fixture also catches up on each of the 12 head-to-head match-ups that were missed in the 2023 season, where each club only played against certain opponents once.

The bottom two sides on the ladder are again set for relegation by season’s end, with the finals series again including five teams over a four-week span.

The finals will commence on the weekend of August 24 and 25, with the grand final slated for Saturday September 14.
