Round Nine will commence on Wednesday 29 July and matches will be played every single day through the four rounds, 20 days straight, finishing on Monday 17 August.

The unprecedented fixture design will see 33 matches across the 20 days, with games played across Western Australia, Queensland, South Australia as well as matches in Tasmania for the first time in 2020.

The two NSW-based teams, Sydney Swans and GWS GIANTS will travel to Perth where they will play West Coast Eagles and Fremantle along with playing each other.
