FROM AFL WD on clarifcation from the State Government

Crowd Caps:

  1. A venue is to be classed as inclusive of both football and netball areas. This means that the vast majority of our grounds are one venue and as such the venue caps apply to the entire area (i.e. not a separate cap for the netball court and football oval areas).
  2. The venue cap is 150 and is inclusive of all players and the minimum number of necessary officials needed to facilitate the match.

Change rooms

Change rooms are not permitted for use (other than for use of toilet facilities and any emergency medical use).

Players must arrive ready to play and leave as soon as practical after the match has concluded.
