The AFL is set to announce a marked increase in the amount of VFL curtain-raisers to be held before AFL matches in season 2019.
It's understood while curtain-raisers will definitely be played at Marvel Stadium, negotiations are still underway for curtain-raisers to also be played at the MCG.
The move represents a significant increase on the handful of curtain-raisers held in 2018, three of which took place at GMHBA Stadium in Geelong.
