The fixture for the 2020 Big V season has been released – the competition set to see even more of the state compete.
With the competition expanding, 145 teams from 47 associations will step back on the court in March to play with elite energy towards a chance at finals and championship glory.
Teams will get back into the swing of things on Saturday 14 March when Southern Peninsula’s Championship Women tip off against Sunbury Jets at 5pm.
From there, teams commence the season with matches on the Saturday night and Sunday all around Victoria.
Running from March through to August, the 2020 season will consist of 16 regular rounds for VYCM, VYCW and YL1M, and 18 regular rounds for all other divisions, plus finals.
There will be plenty of opportunities for fans to watch their team compete all season long with matches being held on weekends.
Scheduled bye weekends will be held over Easter (11-12 April) as well as the Queen’s Birthday long weekend (6-7 June).
The new season will also see new rivalries formed, with several key players having moved to new clubs and 2019 rematches set to rise tensions.
Some highlights of the 2020 Big V fixture include:
- 2019 Champ Grand Final rematches to be held in Round 3 (Women) and Round 5 (Men)
- RMIT’s first season competing in Division 2 Women
- Albury Wodonga’s first season in Youth League 2 Men and Youth League 2 Women
- Melton’s first season in Youth League 2 Women
