The Ovens and Murray will allow spectators onto the ground during breaks in Sunday's preliminary final at John Flower Oval.
A melee broke out at three-quarter-time during the Albury and Myrtleford semi-final clash at Bunton Park on Sunday, with several supporters already on the field for the coach's address, forcing the league to consider banning spectators this weekend.
After discussing the issue at a board meeting on Monday night, league chairman David Sinclair revealed it was a "pretty straightforward decision" to allow everyone on the field at breaks.
"It will just be status quo, we'll allow the crowd on the ground in keeping with a football tradition," Sinclair said.
"It's a big thing in country football to have people go out and listen to the coach talk.
"We have a lockdown on grand final day because we have a lot of other stuff happening and we want to keep the crowd off the ground."

Sinclair admitted if a similar incident happened again on the weekend, the league will consider its options for next year's finals series.
"Grand final is already locked down, but we may look at locking down all our finals in 2020," he said.
"At the moment it will just be status quo given there's only one week left."
Sinclair added it's not something the league wants to see again.
"It's not the first time it's happened and it probably won't be the last, you just hope from a spectator point-of-view that cool heads prevail and spectators don't get involved if something happens on the quarter-time or three-quarter-time siren," he said.
O and M operations manager Greg Dawson will ensure both Lavington and Myrtleford are shown the area they will need to assemble for quarter-time and three-quarter time huddles.
"We'll make sure that happens so we don't have a similar incident to what we had at North Albury on the weekend," Sinclair said.
