AFL clubs could have three options for reserves teams in 2021: fielding their own, aligning with a VFL club or even spreading players to multiple clubs.
Option 1- Fielding their own team
Option 2- Aligning with a current VFL club
Option 3- Spreading listed players among more than one VFL Club
Most likely to be an expanded eastern seaboard league including the Swans, GWS, GC, and Lions fielding our own sides.
The AFL view is that clubs could have the opportunity to choose their own preferred model for reserves, and that if they do not wish to field an AFL reserves team – as the northern teams likely will – the Victorian clubs can either form an alignment with VFL clubs or even spread players into two or more of those sides.
