0:00

The AFL's Melbourne headquarters have been evacuated after a hoax threat, just a day after the league's controversial 'YES' sign supporting same-sex marriage.

The AFL's headquarters in Melbourne's Docklands has been evacuated after a hoax threat was called in.

Victoria Police said they were on the scene conducting safety checks, a day after the AFL replaced its headquarters logo with a prominent 'YES' sign in support of marriage equality.

"AFL House had hoax threat phoned to building this morning. All staff were removed while police checks proceed. Expected to return shortly," AFL spokesman Patrick Keane said on Twitter on Thursday.
