“I spoke to Andrew Fagan … last night and that’s what he’ll be doing today [finding a place for the Crows to set up a hub].” Ricciuto said.
“All footy club presidents and CEOs and footy managers have been changing what they’re doing daily, it’s been just a moving feast.
“And that’s going to continue for Adelaide after that announcement last night. Who knows, I wouldn’t be surprised if it changes again here in the next few days.
“But as of this morning I think the Adelaide Football Club will be preparing to play in hubs outside of Adelaide for pre the games starting, and then maybe up to the first five weeks of the footy season so they can get some certainty in the programming for the AFL because the fixture’s a bloody hard thing to get sorted at the best of times, especially when you don’t know what’s going on with all the restrictions from the premiers and the health departments of individual states.”
Victoria shapes as a likely hub option for the Crows, with the two Western Australian clubs set to base themselves in Queensland for the restart, unless the Western Australian government backs away from its strong stance on its border closures.
