The GIANTS' Round 15 clash against Hawthorn has been moved to Victoria due to the unfolding COVID situation in Sydney.

This will now see the GIANTS play the Hawks at the MCG at 1.10pm on Sunday, June 27.

It'll be just the second game the club has played at the famous venue this season and will provide invaluable experience for the young group.

The GIANTS and cross-town rivals the Swans left Sydney at short notice on Tuesday evening and will continue their preparations in Victoria.

Both clubs have been living under the supplementary protocols since Sunday as an extra precaution. 

The GIANTS are eyeing off a spot in the top eight and currently sit in ninth position, following a 36-point victory over Carlton.

The AFL is expected to confirm arrangements for Round 15, including crowds and ticket on-sale times in the coming days.
