2020 Melbourne Vixens fixture unveiled

29 days ago

For the third consecutive year the Melbourne Vixens will open the Suncorp Super Netball season, hosting the Queensland Firebirds at Melbourne Arena in what is now a traditional Round 1 clash, on Saturday 2 May.

The Vixens will come up against some all too familiar faces in Round 1, with former Vixens Lara Dunkley, Ine-Mari Venter and Rudi Ellis all on the opposing side for the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball season.

This blockbuster will headline seven Vixens home games, hosted at both Melbourne and Margaret Court Arenas, in the heart of Melbourne’s sporting precinct. However, eyes will also be on the Vixens for several blockbuster clashes interstate.

Passions will be tested in Round 5 when the Vixens face off against the 2019 Premiers, the NSW Swifts, as Kate Eddy revisits her old stomping ground at Sydney’s Ken Rosewall Arena.

Round 6 will then see the Vixens match up against cross-town rivals – the Collingwood Magpies - in yet another Queen’s Birthday battle on Monday 8 June.

The Vixens will then get the chance to host the Magpies in Round 14 to close out the regular season.

With no major international tournaments scheduled during the Suncorp Super Netball season in 2020, all teams will receive a bye round either prior to or following their Round 8 fixture, with the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball Finals Series scheduled to commence the weekend immediately following Round 14.

  • Hosting the opening match of the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball season, against the Queensland Firebirds at Melbourne Arena
  • Seven matches at Melbourne Arena (six home matches, one away match v Magpies)
