THE AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal will convene at Etihad Stadium next Tuesday at 2pm to decide the fate of 34 past and present Essendon players.
Western Bulldogs president Peter Gordon revealed the plans on Friday morning, saying a room at Etihad Stadium had been booked for the Tribunal to hand down its decision due to courtroom availability.
A judgement will be handed down and reasons will be relayed to the players, who won't be present but will have access to a live feed.
Gordon said the public would be made aware of the decision and the Tribunal's justification later on Tuesday evening.
"It might take some time to come out if they need to agree on which parts are necessary to protect player privacy," Gordon said on ABC radio.
"I'm glad that we're actually going to get reasons for judgement.
"It's dominated the media and indeed the industry for two years now.
"I think it's as likely as not, indeed possibly the most likely outcome that the case is not proven against the players.
"There are many other stakeholders and people are looking to the court for some direction as to the role of many other people in this."
The allegations before the Tribunal relate back to the alleged use of banned peptide Thymosin beta-4 in the 2012 season.
Essendon self-reported to the AFL and ASADA in February 2013.
The club was banished from the 2013 finals series, fined $2 million and coach James Hird was suspended as a result of an AFL Commission hearing into governance issues at the club.
The Tribunal has also heard evidence against former Bombers sports scientist Stephen Dank.
