What Will the 2021 AFL season look like?

It’s been a year like no other. The Covid-19 pandemic has drastically affected everything in society and sport is not immune. The 2020 AFL season began with no crowds before being postponed for nearly three months. The restarted season looked very different from previous years, with little to no crowds and teams were forced to move into ‘hubs.’

Due to a second wave in Victoria, (where the majority of AFL teams are located), many more games were played in New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia and particularly, Queensland which is normally a rugby state. Brisbane also hosted the Grand Final, which is always played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. It was also the first time that the Grand Final was played at night.

There were alterations to the games as well. Games were now sixteen minutes shorter and there were five less rounds. Rounds were compressed to fit the entire home and away season. 33 games were played across 19 days. Games were played across weekdays and many teams were only given 4 day breaks between matches.  

All these changes forced the clubs to adapt as quickly as possible, but eventually most teams got used to them. But what will the 2021 season look like?

Well, it is hard to tell what is going to happen. It all centres around the pandemic and the possible vaccine. If cases remain low and a vaccine becomes available, it would be likely that the season may return to normal with bigger crowd numbers and games played in Victoria.

It is unknown whether the shortened games will continue next year, as well as the reduction of rounds, although there are rumours that the AFL will push to continue these changes. Fans were disappointed in the low scoring, mainly due to the shortened games, so there may be some pushback if the AFL continues with the reduction in quarter lengths.

It is hard to see the teams at the top this year, not being there next year. Port Adelaide and Brisbane have young lists that almost made it to the Grand Final. Provided they have a good off season, they will be leading contenders next year. While Grand finalists, Richmond and Geelong have very strong list depths, although Geelong has many aging stars that will retire very soon.

St Kilda also had a good season, returning to the finals for the first time in almost a decade. They have a lot of promising young talent so they will also be strong contenders next year.

On the other side, it is not looking very good for Essendon, with many players wishing to leave, which may suggest that there is a poor culture at the club. Adelaide and North Melbourne finished at the bottom of the ladder this year and also have significant problems. Adelaide went winless for thirteen rounds and has many aging players while North Melbourne has a lot of off field issues. First-year coach Rhyce Shaw has been granted long term leave and may not coach at all next year while many players have been delisted.   

Making AFL season predictions is incredibly difficult even in normal times. There have been famous terrible predictions made in the past. Former player and coach, Robert Walls predicted West Coast to win the wooden spoon in 2018 only for them to win the premiership. The Covid-19 pandemic only makes things more unpredictable. What if there is another outbreak in Australia? What if there is an outbreak at a club? What if the AFL season gets cancelled altogether?

The next season is a long way away, and anything can happen. The team that will win the premiership will be the team that has a very good off season, develops its younger players and is adaptable to any changes or obstacles that occur during another potentially chaotic year.
