AFL not giving up hope on Victoria hosting the grand final

The AFL believes it is still possible to host the grand final in Victoria despite the stage four restrictions in the state for the next six weeks.

When asked if stage four restrictions put a line through the AFL grand final being held in Victoria, a spokesman for the league replied “no”.

While stage four restrictions are set to finish well before the mid-to-late October tentative date for the grand final (should the season get that far), there has been no AFL footy played in Victoria since early July.

Queensland has opened its borders to host most of the competition with games also played in WA, SA and NSW.
