2020 AFL preview: Collingwood Magpies team guide

Collingwood had a strong season in 2019, but they’re hoping things will be even better this time around.

Updated

Fact checked
Collingwood Magpies

In recent years, Collingwood have been very close to securing another premiership. The team put up a great campaign in 2019, finishing fourth on the ladder.

However, they endured a four-point defeat to Greater Western Sydney in the first preliminary final, so their dreams of winning it all were shattered. The Magpies also dealt with injuries as the season unfurled. If all goes well, they might fare better in 2020.

Not much has changed for the Pies ahead of the new AFL season. That being said, the squad played without many of their key players for the entirety of 2019. Without an inconsistent roster to worry about, Collingwood might have a crack at the premiership once more.

How to watch Collingwood Magpies AFL matches

Collingwood Magpies fans can follow their favourite team live and free on Seven Network. That being said, Channel Seven only broadcasts four matches per week and which ones you'll see varies from state to state.

If you're a serious supporter or want to make sure you won't miss a minute of the 2020 AFL season, you might want to look into investing in a paid subscription. Kayo Sports, Foxtel and Foxtel Now offer all fixtures besides the grand final live and on demand.
