Martin Pakula says Victorian government expects AFL to bear the cost of a Melbourne AFL quarantine hub

“You are looking at some security measures around grounds that would allow them to be contained in a way that you could be confident that everybody who came and went was COVID free and remained COVID free.

“There is not a huge expenditure in that. The AFL, it would be our expectation, they would be responsible for the vast majority of it.”

The AFL has yet to finalise its plan to resume the season but is weighing up multiple states as potential bases for training, accommodation and matches.

All states and territories remain in contention to host a hub, with Victoria’s world-class sporting facilities making it a favourite.
