MEMBERS of the AFL media will be banned from betting on games they are working on.

New conditions have been added to accreditation for 2016 where media covering a match can’t bet in the two hours leading up to the match and during the game.

“The ban has been introduced to help protect against the potential misuse of information gained by personnel working at a match,” a statement from the AFL said.

However, if a member of the media is covering a match, they can bet on the game outside of the five-hour period.
