AFL boss hopes teams escape from quarantine

AFL boss Gillon McLachlan has flagging the possibility that the AFL season could finish with teams able to travel without the need for quarantine measures.

McLachlan has told the 18 clubs that while the “hub model” gives the AFL competition the best chance of continuing the season, the league hoped that it could finish the season “without the need for a quarantine period” for teams flying interstate, subject to Australia “flattening the curve” of the coronavirus’s infection rate.

“It is important that we all play our role in Australia flattening the curve and if we can continue to achieve that then hopefully we might end up starting with a hub model and finishing with teams able to fly interstate without the need for a quarantine period,” McLachlan told the clubs in a memo issued on Monday evening, following a hook-up of club presidents and chief executives.

“For now, our job is to deal with the current restrictions in place.”
