AFL Barwon has announced that “some” players will eligible for points reduction next year despite the 2020 season not going ahead.
AFL Barwon announced its player points for the 2021 season, which are listed below.
In the past, players’ points go down by one for each year of service to a club, and clubs had been left wondering whether points would be deducted this year, considering a season did not go ahead.
AFL Barwon said players “may be eligible for a one-point Year of Service reduction for the 2020 season IF they; registered with and played five or more senior or reserve matches in 2019 for the club, AND are registered to the same club for the 2021 season”.
There will be no players considered as “Premium Players” if they transfer to a new club in the next transfer period as there was no 2020 season.
