AFL crowd capacities will be lifted to 75% in Victoria following discussions between the league and the Department of Health.
According to The Age's Sam McClure, AFL matches in Victoria from March 25 will have their crowd capacities increased, meaning Thursday night's blockbuster clash between Carlton and Collingwood at the MCG will be able to host up to 75,000 fans.
The AFL and health officials have this morning reached an agreement.
Victorian stadiums will now be able to increase capacities to 75% of maximum for round 2 onwards.
That means 75k at the MCG for Carlton v Collingwood.
