The AFL has made a commitment to play games in front of fans in 2021, which means all games scheduled in Victoria in Round 14 could be relocated interstate if crowd restrictions are not loosened.
Hawthorn has a deal to play two home games a season in Launceston, but the fixtures are usually against interstate teams or Victorian teams with low membership numbers.
The history between the two clubs also makes this the most traditional VFL/AFL rivalry to potentially be played for points in Tasmania.
AFL football operations manager Steve Hocking told 3AW on Saturday that timeslots would stay the same for Round 14 even if games were moved from Victoria.
The AFL will have a meeting with the Victorian Government and the Department of Health early in the week to determine whether Victorian fans will be allowed to return to games in Round 14.
