AFL-ex: Gil McLachlan reveals ex-stars could play role in Hong Kong expansion

League boss Gil McLachlan has revealed big plans for AFLX.

Fresh from a meeting with AFL operations boss Steve Hocking this morning, McLachlan told Neil Mitchell “the future’s enormous” for the new short-form competition, which divided fans in its first season.

Among the potential changes the AFL boss flagged on 3AW today were:

  • A November start date
  • Played in Hong Kong
  • New line-up rules, including former champions and making a certain amount of draft players mandatory

Gil on the Alberti-Gordon spat:
That’s something for Peter and Susan to work through.
Obviously some conflict there, I’m sure they’ll work through it.
