2020 fixture announced

North Melbourne will have the chance to start strongly, playing at home in four of the opening five rounds. 

The Roos will begin the season at Marvel Stadium for the first time since 2017, when they take on St Kilda.

A trip to Brisbane awaits in Round 2, with the two sides facing off again in Hobart in Round 13.

Good Friday now looks set to be a permanent fixture for North, with the Dogs returning to the slot after featuring in the first ‘Kick for the Kids’ in 2017.

 

There are several home blockbusters lined up too with Essendon, Hawthorn and Carlton to do battle at Marvel Stadium.

The Lions, Fremantle and Gold Coast head to Hobart for the first time, while Melbourne will make the trip for the second consecutive season.

An away game in Launceston also awaits against the Hawks at UTAS Stadium in Round 17.

North will also play three home and away games at the MCG for the first time since 2010. 

The Roos will have the bye in Round 14.

See the full fixture below.
