The 2020 AFL season will be cut to 17 rounds with every team to play each other once.
Round 1 could still be played this weekend but there’s been no firm decision on either AFL or AFLW, with more meetings coming across the next 24 hours. A decision on whether Richmond and Carlton’s season-opener goes ahead behind closed doors will be delayed until Tuesday, AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan announced on Monday.
There is a possibility of supplementary playing lists to assist clubs.
The first four rounds will be as currently fixtured in order to give the AFL time to configure the rest of the schedule.
The finals series could be pushed back into October, or even November, in order to complete the season.
