THE AFL will not pit its baby club up against Manchester United, shifting Greater Western Sydney's home clash against Essendon next year to avoid a clash with the soccer heavyweight.

The English Premier League club last week locked in a friendly with an A-League All-Stars side, to be played at night on July 20 next year at ANZ Stadium.

The Giants and Bombers were fixtured to do battle at Skoda Stadium in a Round 17 duel at the same time.

But the final coaching showdown between Giants mentor Kevin Sheedy and his former star James Hird will now be played at 2.10pm in the afternoon.

"The AFL seeks to support major events where possible, and to avoid clashes with any AFL matches, and it's in the best interests of all sports fans for these changes to be made for Round 17 next season with as much notice as we can provide," AFL broadcasting boss Simon Lethlean said.

St Kilda's home game against Port Adelaide at Etihad Stadium will now be played at 7.40pm in a direct swap with the GWS-Dons match, to maintain the broadcast structure.

The reshuffle will bring relief to GWS supporters agonising over which match to attend in Sydney that night.

The NRL currently has a clash with the Manchester United sell-out, with the Sydney Roosters set to host Cronulla Sharks at Allianz Stadium that night.
