Authorities working closely to hold the tournament
"The Federal Government is working closely with Local Organising Committee and state Governments on planning the tournament. Our decisive response to the pandemic and the nation's ability to flatten the curve of the virus has resulted in the roll-out of a three-step framework," said Colbeck.
Colbeck added the tournament could be held behind closed doors, which may bring down the numbers to an extent.
"It will not be without obvious precautions. Australian states and territories are responsible for implementing arrangements regarding the resumption of sport in each jurisdiction. This may result in restrictions on spectator numbers - but in what capacity is not yet clear," he added.
