Adelaide are holding out hope they can host their AFL game against Brisbane as planned despite the Crows and Port Adelaide joining the interstate exodus in relocating to Victoria.
The SA clubs will arrive in Melbourne on Wednesday night, with 16 of the league's 18 clubs already in Victoria.
Brisbane, Gold Coast, West Coast and Fremantle arrived in Melbourne on Tuesday night due to lockdowns in south-east Queensland and Perth.
Despite the SA government deciding against a lockdown after the state recorded five new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, the AFL opted to move the Crows and the Power squads.
Port's clash with Hawthorn at Marvel Stadium on Saturday will go ahead as planned, but a new venue may need to be found for the Crows' clash, scheduled for the Adelaide Oval, with the Lions.
"I would like to assure fans that we may still play our home game against Brisbane at Adelaide Oval as planned," Crows chief executive Tim Silvers said.
"As always, community health and wellbeing remains at the forefront of our thoughts and decision making."
SA's chief health officer Nicola Spurrier said the round-16 match could still be played in Adelaide on Saturday, but fans would unlikely be able to attend.
If the game is only allowed to be held behind closed doors, the AFL would likely re-schedule the match in Victoria instead, especially considering both teams will be in the state.
The Tasmanian government on Wednesday denied the AFL's application to host the Fremantle-Carlton match in Launceston, meaning Geelong's GMHBA Stadium will host the game on Saturday night.
The Dockers pushed for the match to be held in completely neutral territory considering it was originally their scheduled home fixture in Perth.
"As a result of the current national risk the game will not go ahead in Tasmania," Tasmania premier Peter Gutwein said.
"I know that will disappoint many people, especially Carlton supporters who I'm sure there are many of in the state."
The AFL is yet to acknowledge the announcement but AFL broadcasting and clubs manager Travis Auld on Tuesday said the game would be in Geelong on Saturday night if Tasmania was ruled out.
"Bringing the two South Australian teams to Victoria minimises risk for the competition as we progress the season in a constantly changing environment," Auld said on Wednesday.
"As of this evening we will have all 18 teams in Victoria and, as a competition, we will continue to remain adaptable where required.
"The two teams travelling today will fly to Victoria via a charter flight and will remain in the state ahead of this round's matches."
The Victorian government has paused a planned rise in crowd numbers at sporting venues to 85 per cent capacity and will stick with what all stadiums were allowed to cater for last weekend.
It is a contrasting situation to the same time last year when Melbourne's second wave of COVID-19 forced all Victorian clubs to relocate north and the grand final was played in Brisbane for the first time.
The Suns' Thursday night home clash with Richmond has been moved from Metricon Stadium to Marvel Stadium.
Sydney and GWS are already based in Melbourne, having flown out last week because of Bondi's growing COVID-19 cluster.
The Swans' home game against West Coast at the SCG has been shifted to GMHBA Stadium on Sunday, while the Giants will play at the MCG for the second-straight week when they face Melbourne on Saturday.
