Black Diamond Cup grand finals will be held at Adelaide Street Oval next month with AFL Hunter Central Coast officials announcing venues on Monday.
Top-flight deciders for both the men's and women's competitions are set to take place at Killarney Vale's headquarters on October 17.
The remaining three lower grade showdowns will be split between two fields, one at Adelaide Street Oval and the others at Bateau Bay Sports facility, depending on what clubs qualify.
However, AFL HCC community football manager Sam Zikman said the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic had altered the governing body's initial plans.
"We looked at a couple of options and Tuggerah was one of them, but we decided after the year we've had it would be better to support the clubs and give them an opportuity to raise some revenue rather than hosting at a neutral site," Zikman said.
The senior semi-finals on October 10 will be played between Adelaide Street Oval, Cardiff's Pasterfield Sporting Complex and Nelson Bay's Dick Burwell Oval.
In the junior ranks grand finals on October 18 will be shared between Hylton Moore Oval, Ferodale Oval and Tulkaba Park. Semis on October 11 are split across Pasterfield, Feighan Oval, Max McMahon Oval, Don Small Oval and Lisarow Sporting Precinct.
