Melbourne's path to redemption from a disastrous 2019 begins with a tough opening two rounds against West Coast and GWS, but overall the Demons have been blessed with only one double-up against a top-six club (Collingwood) and two matches against Gold Coast. The Dees also play St Kilda, Fremantle and Adelaide twice.
The other clubs gifted double-ups against the Suns are Sydney, Brisbane, Port Adelaide and Fremantle.
Carlton plays two Thursday night games in the first three rounds as the new-look Blues - featuring returning favourite Eddie Betts and possibly Gold Coast's Jack Martin - look to climb the ladder. But the Blues have no Friday night fixtures.
The Round 23 floating fixture is packed with potential top-eight deciders including Brisbane v Essendon, Western Bulldogs v West Coast and Geelong v Adelaide. Collingwood finishes the season with a clash against Gold Coast.
