Live senior sport is heading back to Dubbo.
The long-awaited return of the Western Premier League is set, with the first round of the regional competition to take place next Saturday, July 4.
Dubbo Bulls FC, Macquarie United, and Orana Spurs will fly the flag for the Dubbo association while Barnesworth FC of Orange, Bathurst's Panorama FC, Parkes Cobras, and the Lithgow Workmen round out the competition.
The draw was released on Friday and the Bulls will start the season at home.
The powerhouse club will meet Panorama FC next Saturday from 4.30pm at Lady Cutler 6.
Macquarie United heads to Orange to take on Barnesworth FC while Spurs will be in Parkes.
The match at Parkes officially launches the season as it is first-up at 3pm.
The WPL was originally meant to feature nine clubs but both the South Dubbo Wanderers and Orange's Waratahs FC withdrew form the 2020 title race due to the impact of COVID-19 and uncertainty around player numbers.
The bulk of matches this season will be played on Saturday while there are some Sunday and Wednesday evening games.
The top four move through to semis while the grand final is September 26.
