The AFL is set to discuss the findings of the Carter Review in an upcoming meeting with all 18 club presidents, with discussions set to surround the position of a Tasmanian AFL club license.

The AFL revealed on Tuesday that after speaking with Tasmanian premier Peter Gutwein, league boss Gillon McLachlan will put the idea of a 19th club to the the current crop of club presidents during next year's meeting for Club Funding and the next he Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

The funding model meeting will be headlined by all 18 clubs deciding on the CBA for the 2023 and 2024 season, and will likely take place early into 2022.

Those discussions will now also discuss the future of expansion in the league and the findings from the Carter Review, taking financial implications into consideration, as well as the suggestions made by the report.

“We need to finalise the industry funding model with the 18 clubs given the continuing impact of the Covid pandemic and have undertaken that once that work is done and we have worked through the steps identified by the Carter review, the AFL Commission will put a position to the clubs for decision on a licence for a team to represent Tasmania," the AFL's statement reads.

The agreement between the AFL and the Tasmanian Government will see the deals with North Melbourne and Hawthorn roll over into the 2022 season, with the pair of Victorian clubs set to continue hosting matches in the state.

Tasmania will host two finals matches this weekend, with a growing chance the Apple Isle will be home to a third game next week.
