North Melbourne will head to Tasmania for Rounds 11 and 12, as revealed via the rolling fixture on Tuesday.
The Kangaroos struck a deal to play at Blundstone Arena, and will take on Melbourne and Brisbane respectively.
North CEO, Ben Amarfio, said it is an exciting result.
“We’re absolutely thrilled with the outcome, we love playing in Hobart and we’re looking forward to spending some time at The Old Woolstore, which is a bit like a second home to us,” Amarfio said.
“Our return wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Tasmanian State Government, the AFL, Blundstone Arena and our loyal sponsor Spirit of Tasmania. Their support has been incredible and we are extremely grateful of that.
“We would also like to express our gratitude for the support from the Tasmanian Community Fund, Beacon Foundation and McDonald’s Tasmania.”

North will remain in the hub in Maroochydore before flying to Hobart where it will be based for the round 11 & 12 games.
The quartet of games will be in line with the league's condensed fixture, with 20 straight days of football.
“We obviously haven’t played at Blundstone Arena this season, so we’re really looking forward to returning to play in front of our 5,000 plus members and the Tasmanian community,” Amarfio said.
“We have a deep connection to the state with several of our players originally from there and a great winning record at Blundstone which we hope to build on.
“The Tasmanian community has always been great supporters of ours and we hope to see them come out in force at our games.
“We are speaking with the government about capacity limitations and we hope to have more information for our fans in due course.”
Amarfio said the goodwill extended by state governments to keep the season moving forward has been exemplary.
“It’s been a very unique experience but the support and willingness from the various states like Tasmania to host clubs has been incredible,” he added.
“These matches simply wouldn’t be possible without the levels of cooperation we’ve had from Premier Gutwein, Minister Howlett and Events Tasmania. We are very thankful for that and we look forward to playing a few more matches in Hobart later this season too.”
