Six AFL clubs will move to a hub in Queensland, as confirmed by the state’s Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.

St Kilda, North Melbourne, Essendon, Western Bulldogs, Richmond and Carlton will all make the move to the Sunshine State.

“Essentially Queensland is going to be the home of the AFL, they should give us the grand final after this,” Palaszczuk said on Friday.

“Four teams are going to be on the Gold Coast and two on the Sunshine Coast.

“There will be a lot more matches at the Gabba and Metricon and of course our capacity is 50 per cent of the public being able to go see these sports stars in action.

“(They’ll be here) for the rest of the season is my understanding.”

It is currently unclear when they will move from Melbourne.
