North Melbourne’s VFL side will continue its pre-season preparations, taking on Port Melbourne in a practice match on Saturday.

After a series of hit-outs throughout March against fellow VFL teams, North will face the 2017 premiers on Saturday at its traditional home at Arden Street.

With the installation of six light towers underway, Arden Street’s transformation has begun, and it’s not long until VFL and AFLW home and away games are played at the venue.

Fans are invited to attend the game, with the first bounce at 3:15pm on Saturday afternoon.

The Roo Shop will be open until 4pm for merchandise sales.
