The AFL’s skinniest ground will get even tighter as the League moves to reduce boundary sizes at GMHBA Stadium.
Ahead of Geelong’s final four matches at the venue this year, the wings will each be brought in by half a metre, the ground’s width narrowing to 116m.
It will ensure a 5.5 metre gap between the boundary line and fence, putting it above the AFL’s minimum requirement of five metres.
Goal posts will remain in the same spot with the ground’s length to stay at 170m.
The Cats next host Melbourne at GMHBA Stadium in round 18 before playing Brisbane, Fremantle and Gold Coast at home in the run home.
