With just 3 matches, 4 composite teams and an all stars game instead of a grand final this year's 2020 VFLW season seems more in line with the VFL young guns matches played in previous seasons than a proper VFLW season.
Victoria gets the go-ahead for state competition to take place
VFLW players will also get to show their talents in a four-team 'super series' to be staged in September this year.
The round of matches will allow players in the competition to press their claims to be picked in the 2020 NAB AFLW Draft which will be held later this season.
The VFLW super series will see each team play three matches before an All-Star clash is held, which will see the best players from across the series selected.
With 10 of the 12 VFLW clubs tied to AFL clubs, the League had to find another way to get its season up and going following the coronavirus-enforced suspension earlier this year.
AFL Victoria will in coming weeks work through the selection process for its VFLW super series, which will see 120 of the competition's best players take the field.
