AFL releases fixture as return to play looms

After a two-month coronavirus hiatus, the AFL dropped its round two to five fixture last week, with Collingwood and Richmond to re-kick off the 2020 season.

A single AFL round was completed in late March behind closed doors, but was swiftly put on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Players returned to training earlier this month, with full contact training going ahead from May 25.

From June 11 to July 5, the league will play 18 of the remaining 144 season games, with a round six onwards fixture to be released at the end of round three.

Due to border restrictions in WA and SA, West Coast, Freemantle, Port Adelaide and Adelaide will be based out of a quarantine hub in Queensland for several weeks.

Quarters will be shortened to 16 minutes for the remainder of the season to keep exposure between clubs to a minimum.
