Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced an easing of restrictions in the state that will allow the AFL and other codes to begin training in groups, paving the way for football’s return.
Andrews said on Monday morning that the government had “agreed to a set of arrangements to allow training for AFL, for rugby league, other professional sports, to resume from just before midnight tomorrow night [Tuesday]”.
The move brings Victoria in line with other states, with the AFL now able to lift the training limit from two people.
Andrews said each sport must put in place its own plans and must be self-contained. He said use of an indoor gym space must be exclusively for professional sport and controlled by the team using it.
