The 2020 AFL season will officially resume on June 11.
According to AFL.com.au, Presidents and CEOs of the league’s 18 clubs were informed this morning of the re-start date, and given permission to commence non-contact training as of Monday, with contact training permitted from May 25.
The first match details in the new fixture will be released to the public next week.
Only one round has been played in the 2020 season, with the league suspended earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The AFL website also stated that all players and club officials will be tested for COVID-19 before entering training facilities on Monday, and will be tested twice a week going forward.
Four clubs, including West Coast, Fremantle, Adelaide, and Port Adelaide, will base themselves at two golf course resorts on the Gold Coast.
With South Australian government rules declaring contact training cannot begin in the state until June 8, it is expected Adelaide and Port Adelaide will move to the quarantine hub in Queensland earlier to begin preparation for the season.
The clubs will then play a series of matches against each other, the Gold Coast Suns, and the Brisbane Lions.
AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan is set to reveal further details today.
Stay tuned for more information.
