Fifteen Bombers are in line to reach milestones in the 2020 home and away season.
Two players could pull on the red and black guernsey for the 200th time, three are on track to etch 150 games in the history books, five are closing in on the ton, and five have a half-century in their sights.
Following the 2020 AFL fixture announcement, find out when and where the milestones could happen.
200 games – Cale Hooker and Michael Hurley
Cale Hooker is in arm’s length of playing his 200th game, while fellow defender Michael Hurley could chalk up the double century later in the season.
Hooker is set to run out for his 200th in the Bombers' round seven home game against Melbourne at the MCG. The match will also mark the 20th anniversary of the Bombers’ 2000 premiership triumph over the Demons.
Hurley is 21 games away from 200, so the earliest he can reach the milestone is against Sydney at Marvel Stadium in round 22.
150 games – Devon Smith, Tom Bellchambers and Jake Stringer
After missing the majority of 2019 with a knee injury, 2018 Crichton medallist Devon Smith will be out to make up for lost time in 2020.
He'll enter the season on 138 games, so if he can avoid injury, he'll chalk up 150 after the bye against West Coast at Optus Stadium in round 13.
Ruckman Tom Bellchambers (129 games) has 150 in his sights, but he'll have to produce his best output in a season to get there.
If he can, the earliest he could celebrate his 150th is against Sydney at Marvel Stadium in round 22.
Jake Stringer has never played every game in a home and away season, but if he can in 2020, he'll reach 150 in the round 23 clash against Brisbane at the Gabba.
100 games – Adam Saad, Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti, Patrick Ambrose, Marty Gleeson and Shaun McKernan
Dashing defender Adam Saad is likely to be the first Bomber to reach 100 games in 2020, with the milestone falling as early as round eight against Geelong at the MCG.
The game will again recognise country Victoria, celebrating the fifth year of the Powercor Country Festival between the two clubs.
Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti has 100 goals to his name, but could make it 100 games as well.
Sitting on 89, he's on track to play his 100th against Gold Coast at Marvel Stadium in round 11.
After an impressive 2019 season that saw him win the Adam Ramanauskas Most Courageous award, Patrick Ambrose is 13 games shy of 100, which could fall against St Kilda in round 14 if he plays every game prior.
Like McDonald-Tipungwuti, the 28-year-old was recruited from Essendon VFL's side.
Marty Gleeson could also reach 100 games in 2020, but that'll be a tough ask, given the talented defender will need to play every game to hit the century against the Lions in round 23.
It's the same situation for forward Shaun McKernan, who also joins Gleeson on 78 games.
50 games – James Stewart, Michael Hartley, Jayden Laverde, Matt Guelfi and Andrew Phillips
Five Essendon players are closing in on 50 games in 2020, with James Stewart (45) the closest.
If he can overcome the groin troubles that plagued his 2018 season and work his way back into the senior line-up, Stewart's 50th could come as early as round five against Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.
Michael Hartley (44) will be eyeing off a 50th celebration in the blockbuster Anzac Day match against Collingwood, which will be played in a twilight slot on Saturday next year in a minor shake-up to tradition.
Jayden Laverde (40) could also play his 50th in a blockbuster, needing to play every game to see it come against Richmond in the annual Dreamtime at the 'G game in round 10.
Despite being taken at pick No.76 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft, Matt Guelfi has defied the odds in his short career and could reach 50 games in just his third season. He's 18 matches shy of the milestone, which could come against Adelaide at Marvel Stadium in round 19.
Newcomer Andrew Phillips (41 games), who crossed over from Carlton during the Telstra AFL Trade Period, has had a long journey to 50 but could finally reach the half-century as early as round nine against North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium.
