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.
