Australian Rules Football is about to delve into their newest venture, with the first ever AFLX competition to be held across three different states from the 15th-17 of February and promises to be an exciting, fast paced format of the much in the mould of T20 cricket!
Here’s what you need to know about the brand new iteration of Australian Rules Football, AFLX.
- The game will be played on a soccer-size rectangular pitch.
- Each team will consist of 7 players on the field at any given time and a further three players on the bench.
- Three midfielders, two defenders and two forwards designated to sections of the ground.
- The game will feature only one umpire, with no centre bounces and kick ins from full back after goals and the sidelines after an out of bounds.
- The game will be split into two 10 minute halves.
Now that you’ve got the basics down-pat, it’s time to talk about the important stuff! Yes, betting agencies around Australia will be offering markets on the brand new version of AFL, and yes, we could see recently retired superstars of the AFL filling team rosters in an attempt to boost the hype of the inaugural season!
