GOLD Coast will not be able to trade one of its future picks in the upcoming Trade Period as the AFL Commission decided it would review its concessions for the Suns next year.

The Suns were given a range of measures last year to help lift the club off the bottom of the ladder, including a priority pick at the top of last year's draft and extra fixed picks for the 2020 and 2021 drafts.

Previously the club had the licence to trade any of the selections they were given, as they did with this year's No.11 draft pick in a deal with Geelong during last year's NAB AFL Draft.

But the AFL confirmed on Thursday that the Suns would not be allowed to trade their 2021 start of second round selection. 

The League also decided that should there be any changes to list sizes this year, the Suns, who had more than 50 players on their list this season, be subject to the same changes "on a pro-rata basis".

The full range of concessions, which also sees the Suns able to automatically pre-list any Academy players without having to match bids, will be reassessed in 2021.

The AFL Commission at its meeting this week also confirmed AFL.com.au's report from August that will see clubs' priority access to top Next Generation Academy prospects wound back.

With clubs to be putting in less money and resources to the program after the hits of COVID-19, the AFL is keen to reduce the access clubs have to the top prospects under the talent scheme.

The Commission confirmed that concessions would be "revised", with a new model to come into effect following this year's NAB AFL Draft. 

It is likely to see the first one to two rounds of the draft become 'protected' from bids on NGA players.
