AFL hubs set to cost league $60 million as 2020 season hits game's bottom lineThe crippling cost of keeping the AFL's interstate hubs has been revealed with the league paying the cost for Melbourne's second wave of COVID-19.

The AFL's bill for maintaining the hubs has hit the league's hip pocket to the tune of $4-5 million a week as the overall cost is set to eclipse $60 million.

Not your words but if the costs were “crippling” the competition would be crippled and not continuing.

The AFL has already stated that they have similar contingency plans for next season if required.

It is a massive expense that could not have been expected, but far less expensive that not having a competition at all.

The NRL has had to pay for the Melbourne Storm Who have set up in a Resort in Sunshine Coast
and the NZ Warriors on the central coast.

I think i read something it was costing the NRL a 200-300k for this.

well yeah be around the figure which has been stated.
AFL club lists are also higher.

not sure how much it is costing the NRL for the warriors to based in NSW

AFL as of last round was sitting at in excess of 60million.
with 1 round to go plus bye round and finals.

This could be massive by the time Grand Final hits.
