AFL update 3 March

Peter Gutwein,Premier

I have now had two constructive conversations with AFL CEO Gill McLachlan in recent days.

Importantly, Mr McLachlan understands very clearly our desire to have the consultant’s work on the Tasmanian AFL Licence Taskforce report completed by the middle of the year, and that the agreed consultant must be someone that is independent and suitable to both the AFL and the State.

Having the work completed by the middle of the year will enable us to move forward with clarity, make arrangements with Hawthorn and North Melbourne, and importantly take the next steps towards our own Tasmanian team.

Mr McLachlan has committed to providing me with an answer by the end of next week, and I will provide a further update by next Friday, 12 March 2021.
