The 2020 NAB AFL Women's competition will stop immediately and no premiership cup will be awarded.

AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan made the decision to also pause the AFL season until at least May 31st as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

The decision was made following Prime Minister Scott Morrision placing restrictions on travel on Sunday morning.

"Today’s AFLW semi-final between Carlton and Brisbane Lions will be the last NAB AFL Women’s match to be played with the 2020 season ending today," McLachlan said.

"Given the twin conference structure and that the finals series was not completed, the AFL Commission has determined no premiership will be awarded for this season, following a recommendation from the AFL Executive."

McLachlan said the worsening situation and the decision by various State Governments to close their borders meant it was time for the AFL to immediately stop the AFL and AFLW competitions.

Last week the decision was made to stop the home and away season and jump straight into an AFLW finals series, but that lasted just one weekend before circumstances changed.

Fremantle, Carlton, North Melbourne and Melbourne had progressed to the preliminary finals, but those games will not be played now.
