The AFL will use four boundary umpires for all matches in this year's finals series.

AFL umpiring manager Jeff Gieschen said having an extra umpire on each side of the ground would enable them to be in the best position to judge line decisions.

He said the system had been successfully trialled in past pre-season games and during this year's Hall of Fame tribute match.
