West Coast will consider asking the AFL to play 'home' finals at Adelaide Oval this season if circumstances don't allow the matches to be hosted in Perth.
Western Australia's tight border restrictions have all but ruled out the Eagles' chances of hosting a final at Optus Stadium after week one, with teams required to serve a seven-day hard quarantine on arrival in Perth before playing matches.
Most finals in 2020 will be played at Brisbane's Gabba, including the grand final.
However, ladder-leaders Port Adelaide will be allowed to play lead-up finals at Adelaide Oval because clubs can travel freely between Queensland and South Australia.
Gold Coast's Metricon Stadium is also a live option.
West Coast football manager Craig Vozzo said the club will look at playing home finals at Adelaide Oval, especially if they are drawn as the home team against Brisbane.
The Eagles have an 80 per cent winning record at Adelaide Oval, with just two losses in 10 visits over six seasons.
It includes the famous 2017 elimination final victory, sealed by Luke Shuey's after-the-siren goal in extra time.
"If that's permissible from an AFL perspective, we would," Vozzo told TAB Radio on Thursday.
"We've enjoyed, over the years, playing at Adelaide Oval.
"Our players really like the environment there and have done quite well over the journey, so it's certainly something in those scenarios that we'd consider."
Vozzo confirmed West Coast's travelling party, currently in Queensland to complete the home-and-away rounds, plans to head home to Perth during the pre-finals bye regardless of where their first final will be played.
West Coast expect to get leading goal kicker Josh Kennedy back for Sunday's meeting with the Western Bulldogs after he missed the win over Essendon because of concussion.
Shuey strained both his hamstrings in that match and will not return before the finals.
Meanwhile, Vozzo expects suspended forward Willie Rioli to have his hearing with ASADA later this year.
Rioli is facing a four-year ban for allegedly tampering with his urine sample during a routine test last year.
The 25-year-old has been provisionally suspended since September.
The Eagles had been left in the dark as to when Rioli would learn his fate.
But Vozzo said West Coast have now been told the hearing date will be at some point in the next few months.
The Eagles have turned to experienced QC David Grace to handle the case.
