For the Adelaide’s two teams they will relocate to the Gold Coast in Queensland for at least four weeks to take part.
AFL CEO Gillion McLachlan has confirmed that the 2020 season will get back underway on June 11th.
McLachlan revealed the AFL’s return to play in a press conference on Friday afternoon, stating that clubs will be allowed full contact training twice a week from May 25 onward.
The fixture for the season is yet to be determined, with Mclachlan announcing that it will be released in blocks of four – to – six weeks in order to maintain the league’s flexibility, with the first block to be released in the next 10 days.
The finals series will remain in its traditional four-week format, with the league having no concrete plans to play the 2020 Grand Final outside Victoria at this stage.
West Coast, Fremantle, Adelaide and Port Adelaide will all initially be based in the Gold Coast, and will play matches between themselves as well as the two Queensland-based teams to start the season.
West Coast and Fremantle will complete their pre-season training block at their home bases, before travelling to Queensland prior to June 11 to resume their seasons.
However, due to SA restrictions, Port Adelaide and Adelaide will be required to fly to Queensland prior to the May 25 start date for full contact training.
West Coast and Fremantle will be housed at The Pines Resort, while Adelaide and Port Adelaide will stay at the Mercure Resort.
