Collingwood will kick off its 2020 season coming face to face with cross-town rivals, the Melbourne Vixens on Sunday.

With the two sides having relocated into a Queensland hub earlier this month, the round one match will be closed to the public as the teams remain in quarantine.

The Magpies will take to the court with a fresh line up this season. In the absence Nat Medhurst, April Brandley, Kim Ravaillion and Ash Brazill, several opportunities are presented to the younger members of the group.

Magpies fans are also excited with the possibility of seeing co-captain, Madi Browne make her return after 18 months on the sidelines due to an ACL injury.

The Vixens will be without netball veteran Renae Ingles but will have the inclusions of Kate Eddy and Tayla Honey this season.

In their three encounters last season, the Magpies walked away with two solid wins but suffered a semi-final loss.
