The AFL has agreed a decision on whether a standalone team from Tasmania will enter the league will be made in early 2022, after negotiations between AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan and Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein over a timeline were finalised on Tuesday.
The agreement means that Gutwein will roll over the existing contracts with Hawthorn and North Melbourne to play games in Tasmania into 2022.
The decision comes after the Carter Report, released early this month, declared that a standalone team in Tasmania was viable and the AFL should pursue a process towards establishing a team in the state.
