St George Illawarra and the NRL have today announced the Dragons' fixtures for the upcoming 2020 NRL Telstra Premiership season.
The Dragons will commence the 2020 season with consecutive games at the club's home venues in Wollongong and Kogarah. Round 1 will see the Wests Tigers head to WIN Stadium for the first time since 2008, while the Red V will tackle the Penrith Panthers the following round at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.

The 2020 draw has delivered one Thursday night, two Fridays, three Saturday and five Sunday games in addition to the traditional Anzac Day fixture against the Sydney Roosters, which falls on a Saturday next year.
The Dragons will be hitting the road again in 2020, and are looking forward to seeing all the Red V members and fans in Brisbane (twice), Gold Coast, Newcastle and Canberra.
St George Illawarra management worked with all relevant stakeholders to determine our 2020 home game fixtures after obtaining the club's round allocations last week, as determined by the NRL and host broadcasters.
"We are always faced with the the rare and complex process of negotiating our home games between multiple venues. While we have limited say on venue availability and our opponents, in 2020, we are pleased for the most part that our home games alternate between venues for our Red V members and fans to all enjoy," Dragons CEO Brian Johnston said.
"The quality of home games across our traditional venues in Kogarah and Wollongong as well as the annual Anzac Day fixture against the Sydney Roosters is something we should all be excited about ahead of the 2020 season.
"We look to forward to seeing one of the game's premier local derbies return to Kogarah in 2020 when we face the Sharks in June, while the chance to host the 2019 grand finalists Canberra Raiders in Wollongong should prove a sensational opportunity for our team."
