The big question is whether the coronavirus pandemic will be the end of the year for the Western Bulldogs, who could be looking to add another AFL team to their roster.
The Bulldogs are currently a three-team battle for a finals spot with the Sydney Swans and Adelaide, with the club hoping to add a fourth club in the coming months.
The AFL is set to be introduced at the start of the season and it is understood the club is exploring the possibility of joining a new club.
The Western Bulldogs have been in talks with the Swans about a possible relocation, with both clubs keen on keeping the club.
But if the AFL does introduce the coronivirus ban for the next 12 months, the Bulldogs could look to build on their success in the WAFL.
The Swans have also been linked with a move to the Western Footscray, and the Swan’s first game of the 2017 season against the Western Tigers was played in Darwin on Saturday night.
The WAFL season kicks off at the Gold Coast next Saturday.
