The Adelaide Oval and the Domain Stadium in Perth will play host to the Virgin Australian International Rules Test between Ireland and Australia this November.

The first test will take place in Adelaide on Sunday, November 12 with the Perth venue playing host to the deciding test six days later.

It will be the final game to take place at the Domain Stadium.

The series returns to a two test format for the first time since 2013.

Ireland are the current holders of the Cormac McAnallen trophy after their victory at Croke Park in 2015.

Geelong boss Chris Scott will be the Aussies senior coach and will be assisted by his brother Brad and Fremantle mentor Fremantle mentor Ross Lyon.

"Another Test in Perth, which is fantastic, a rich history here, a number of victories, close games and sell-outs," Lyon said.

"My experience here was a sell-out and previous to that every other game has been a sell-out, which is fantastic, and it really displays the passion of Perth football people.
