They will play wherever the AFL fixture say it will be played ala Cairns, Darwin, Alice Springs, Ballarat and Wellington.
Problem is the tens of millions of dollars that would be needed to bring Moorabbin up to the standard of Ballarat or Wellington.

In Melbourne, the AFL would expect that. They wouldn't allow it at an Alice Springs like standard. And even that might require a few mil.

The way it is going with COVID an all Vic season isn't out of the question.

Don't know if Moorabin has the broadcast facilities for senior AFL games though.
I think they can just bump in what they need each time, same as Princes Park for AFLW.

What lights are available? Those portable towers don't cut it.

Increase revenue? Cut spending?

What are you suggesting? Double their ticket prices and make sponsors pay three times as much? Or should they pay a salary cap with less than minimum spend? Cut their coaching support staff to an inferior level compared with their competitors? Sell some treadmills or some footballs?

The Saints will be fine. Plenty of industries and organisations have struggled this year. Stop trolling.
What is 5% of the salary cap.

There is your first answer.
