Two AFL teams set to relocate to Cairns

Two AFL clubs are set to relocate up north to Cairns, as the league continues to work around the coronavirus outbreak in Victoria and various state rules.

In what’s been a turbulent restart for the league, games have been constantly reshuffled and teams have been shuttled between states to adhere to ever changing government advice on border crossings.

A number of clubs fled to the Gold Coast, which has now become the new home of AFL.


But the Premier has revealed this morning that two clubs will soon make their way to Cairns, with three games to be played at Cazaly’s Stadium.

It means a major cash injection for the local economy, which has been struggling without tourists during the coronavirus shutdown.

It’s still to be announced exactly which two teams will relocate, but they’re expected to state for around a month.
