AFL Central Victoria Points and Salary Cap Allocation for 2018


The AFL Central Victoria Commission has confirmed the allocated points and player payments for 2018. 

Team Points

The Commission believes it is more beneficial to clubs to have a minimum of a 3 point gap between the categories.

BFNL

  • 38 points – Eaglehawk, Golden Square, Sandhurst and Strathfieldsaye – large population base, strong junior systems and reasonable success
  • 43 points – Gisborne, Kangaroo Flat, Kyneton and South Bendigo – junior systems are developing
  • 46 points – Castlemaine and Maryborough – challenging demographic and less successful in recent times

This allocation represents the following changes:

  • A decrease to Gisborne and Kyneton from 45 points to 43 points – neither club used their previous point allocation and both Castlemaine and Maryborough finished below them on the ladder in all grades
  • An increase to Castlemaine and Maryborough from 45 points to 46 points – this provides a 3 point buffer between the categories

HDFNL

  • 40 points – North Bendigo – sustained success
  • 43 points – Colbinabbin, Huntly, Leitchville Gunbower and White Hills – all made finals this year
  • 46 points – Elmore, Heathcote, Lockington Bamawm United and Mt. Pleasant – less success in recent times

This allocation represents the following changes:

  • A decrease to North Bendigo from 42 points to 40 points as they have had sustained success
  • The new category of 43 points has seen a decrease from 44 points to Leitchville Gunbower and White Hills – both these teams made finals this year
  • The new category of 43 points has seen an increase from 42 points to Colbinabbin and Huntly

NCFL

  • 40 points – Boort, Charlton, Donald, St. Arnaud, Sea Lake Nandaly, Wedderburn and Wycheproof
  • 43 points – Birchip-Watchem

This allocation represents the following changes:

  • An increase to Charlton and Donald from 38 points to 40 points – both teams finished out of the finals this season
  • A decrease to Sea Lake Nandaly from 42 points to 40 points – Sea Lake Nandaly was originally allocated 40 points in 2017 and was increased to 42 points on appeal – a number of players will decrease by 1 point if they retain them for 2018
  • A decrease to Birchip Watchem from 45 points to 43 points – reasonable success and grand final in 2017

LVFNL

  • 40 points – Bridgewater
  • 46 points – Bears Lagoon Serpentine, Calivil, Maiden Gully YCW Eagles, Marong, Mitamo and Newbridge
  • 48 points – Inglewood and Pyramid Hill

This allocation represents the following changes:

  • A decrease to Bridgewater from 42 points to 40 points as they have had sustained success

Player Payments

The panel has retained the Player Payments at $160,000 for BFNL.

The panel has retained the Player Payments at $140,000 for HDFNL and NCFL.

The panel have increased the Player Payments to $130,000 for 2018 to assist with retaining players.
