The 2020 AFL season has been postponed after just one round due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The 2020 NAB AFL Women's season has been cancelled, with no premiership to be awarded.

Clubs were on Sunday afternoon informed of the decision reached by the AFL Commission. The scheduled Hawthorn-Brisbane and West Coast-Melbourne games will be completed to finish off Round 1.

There remains, though, a commitment to play the remaining 144 matches of the 2020 season, which was last week reduced to a 17-game-per-team fixture.
