The massive financial impost comes as the league announced yesterday that Victorias 10 teams faced the rest of the season living away from home. The AFL is looking at cramming the remaining 11 rounds of the home-and-away season into the next 10 weeks, meaning football is locked out of Melbourne until finals. Hefty bill to keep Vics afloat in Queensland Brisbane and Adelaide have already began a war of words to host the grand final, despite AFL chief executive officer Gillon McLachlan saying footys biggest day would be played at the MCG unless there are circumstances and reasons that it cant be. As Victorian players faced the rest of the season living out of a suitcase the league began the complicated process of reuniting them with their loved ones. A transitional hub has been set up at the Mantra resort in Southport for partners and families to fly north and serve two weeks quarantine before moving in with the footballers. While details were still being finalised about each clubs expected living arrangements, it emerged that not all partners would be leaving Melbourne. The AFL said clubs would have to foot the cost of any numbers above 100, and already some teams have stipulated that a relationship must have been going for 12 months to be considered for hub life. Flights and strict border exemptions for those partners and families heading north were being organised by the AFL on Wednesday night. Families and loved ones who want to join their partners in Queensland, we will facilitate this, AFL CEO McLachlan said. Theres some criteria around kids, those who are living with partners and those who are in longer-term relationships. Its not for someone whos had a partner for a few weeks, but anything thats of substance, we have people who will work through that criteria. Were not going to be silly about this. LAUREN WOOD AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan says the AFL will help players families with a move north.
