The AFL has rescheduled a NAB Cup clash between the Western Bulldogs and Essendon from Darwin to Melbourne on Friday February 13, to raise funds for communities devastated by this month's Victorian bushfires. 

AFL Chief Executive Andrew Demetriou said the league, the players and the 16 clubs wanted to work together to raise funds and show their support for the communities affected by the fires and the emergency service workers and volunteers who have risked their lives to fight the fires or provide support. He said the match was moved to Melbourne after discussions with the Victorian State Government.
