Expect to see a number of VFL curtain-raisers in 2019, with a number set to be held at both Marvel Stadium and the MCG.
AFL.com.au’s Mitch Cleary is reporting AFL-affiliate teams in the VFL are set to be featured prominently as the state league competition gets pushed back into the spotlight.
The report adds that the move was initiated by Channel Seven in an aim to reduce costs and allow VFL coverage to roll straight into the AFL.
The curtain-raisers are set to reduce the pre-game lull, with matches set to conclude 35-45 minutes before AFL fixtures get underway.
