St Kilda will face North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium in the opening round of the 2020 Toyota AFL Season at 1.10pm on Sunday, 22 March.

Under Brett Ratten, the new-look Saints will be hoping for the perfect start, with Bradley Hill, Max King and Hunter Clark set to take the football world by storm.

The Roos will host the Saints at Docklands as the red, white and black aim to make it three consecutive wins from Round 1.

Last year’s hair-raising one-point win over the Suns got the Saints off to a strong start to the season and introduced Callum Wilkie and Matty Parker to the St Kilda faithful.

Rewind to 2018, and Hunter Clark’s debut game spelled the start of a blossoming career and a 25-point victory against Brisbane.

And with Bradley Hill’s 150th game and Max King’s debut pencilled in for Round 1 of 2020, this season opener could be the most exciting yet.
