The Gold Coast is in the box seat to host AFL's night of nights.
A venue for this year's Brownlow Medal is due to be confirmed in the coming days after the Gabba in Brisbane won the rights to host this year's grand final on October 24.
The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre has been outed as the likely venue to continue the AFL's ongoing partnership with the Queensland government.
It will be the second time the Brownlow Medal has been held outside Victoria after it was hosted by Sydney in 1999.
AFL boss Gil McLachlan said the prestigious event would be a 'hybrid event' where attendance numbers at the venue will be restricted to capped number.
Other players will make a virtual appearance via Zoom.

'We have a partnership here (with the Queensland government) and I think we will announce that in the next couple of days without trying to be too cute with it,' McLachlan told reporters.
'It will be a hybrid event. Those players still competing and playing will not be able to attend the event. That will be virtual for them. Those who have come out of hubs because they aren't competing on the field anymore can attend.'
The AFL will spend the next 48 hours finalising the details for the Brownlow Medal, which is expected to held in the week prior to the October 24 grand final.
Queensland is currently home to 13 AFL teams due
