AFL slashes prize purse
PRIZE money for this year’s AFL finals will be slashed because of the COVID-19 crisis.
The 2020 premiers were slated to collect $1.2 million in bonus payments, with the runners-up receiving $660,000.
But the AFL said its prize pool was being reduced to reflect current circumstances.
Documents filed with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission on Wednesday revealed the AFL pumped $23.5 million into GWS in 2019.
Locally the Gold Coast Suns recieved a record distribution of $27.5 million, the Brisbane Lions $22.6 million while St Kilda ($20.6 million), took the most of the Victorian clubs.
