VFL 2021 what could it look like

Tomorrow VFL club presidents will meet to start chatting to AFL about what the 2021 VFL season will look like

My thoughts are

1. VFA name will never return (that is dead)

2. No AFL Reserves competition as it is too expensive especially given current COVID circumstances.


Insteresting things to look at we have 14 VFL teams effectively going forward, we could add the following

1. one or both Carlton and Northern Blues (Preston) participating

2. 4 AFL aligned teams from Northern Australia (Brisbane Lions, Sydney Swans, GWS Giants & Gold Coast Suns) also have asked to participate.

This could take us back to 2000 when 20 teams were in the league then add to the Mix Tasmania being included in VFL in 2022 to make it possibly a 21 team competition.

I understand they hope to make a decision by the end of August

Would like to hear other people's thoughts on this?
