AFL Goldfields Player Points Policy 2021

AFL Goldfields Player Points Program for 2021

 

After consultation with member leagues affiliated to AFL Goldfields, neighbouring regions and with AFL Victoria, AFL Goldfields confirms that the maximum allowable player points for clubs will remain the same as was approved for the cancelled 2020 season.

Within the AFL Goldfields Player Points Policy clubs can be allocated up to a maximum of 47 points for players selected in any one match.

The maximum points are allocated based upon previous results for the club considering performances over previous seasons, most particularly 2019.

This allows for a range of points to be applied to give clubs who have struggled or played few finals in recent years with the opportunity to recruit players who may be of higher quality than they have had available to them previously.

The allocated player points for 2021 are:

Individual clubs are able to apply for a figure higher than initially allocated if they believe they fit a range of criteria within the policy.

In addition, in 2021 AFL Goldfields affiliated clubs will be able to apply for individual player point relief under two criteria additional to that which they have had available in previous years.

Players who were part of the club in 2019 and qualified for a one-point reduction in their individual points under the policy for the planned 2020 season and remain for 2021 will be eligible to receive a further one point deduction.

Also juniors from 2019 who remain with the club and register for 2021 will be able to apply to have the abandoned 2020 season considered towards the requirements for them to be an eligible one point home club player when they move into senior football.

AFL Goldfields Regional General Manager, Gerard Ryan said, “this retention of the same maximum points from 2020 for each club and a single point reduction for players who remain loyal to their club from 2019 until 2021 will give clubs the opportunity to continue recruiting knowing that there has been some relief for missing out on the 2020 season.

“A primary purpose of the Player Points Policy as part of the overall AFL Victoria Community Club Sustainability Program is to reward club loyalty and promoting of juniors within the club. 

“The one-point reduction and recognition of juniors remaining at their home club is supporting this purpose and it will assist in clubs being able to move towards the hoped for resumption of community football in 2021 with greater confidence.”
