AFL House evacuated after 'hoax' threat

AFL House evacuated after 'hoax' threat”

Police were called to AFL House in Melbourne's Docklands after learning of the threat on Thursday afternoon.

"AFL House had hoax threat phoned to building this morning".

AFL CEO Gill McLachlan was seen speaking with other staffers as he waited on the street for police to complete the safety checks.

It now appears to be a hoax, with employees set to return to the building shortly.

Dozens of staff returned to the building about 1.30pm.

"Thanks for your interest and concern".

The AFL said they had called police after receiving a "hoax threat" over the phone. It's believed more than 150 staff work at the code's headquarters.

Staff have been evacuated from the AFL headquarters after police received a threat, just hours after they removed a "Yes" gay marriage sign from the building.

The issue has divided the game with AFL's The Footy Show panellist Sam Newman, premiership-winning coach Mick Malthouse and former Collingwood captain Tony Shaw amongst the critics.

Premier Daniel Andrews said individual organisations could have their own views on the marriage equality postal survey, but he praised the AFL's chief executive for standing up for the "Yes" vote.
