AFLX Explained
AFLX as a fast-paced, high-octane version of the game and is being compared by many to Twenty20 Cricket.

Some modifications have been made for the tournament:

  1. The match is played on a soccer/rugby-sized rectangular field.
  2. Teams of seven (plus seven on the bench with unlimited rotations).
  3. Fast, free-flowing footy.
  4. One umpire, no centre bounces, kick-ins from behind the goal line after all scores.
  5. Last touch out-of-bounds free kick.
  6. Two 10-minute halves with a two-minute break at half-time.  
  7. 10 points for goals outside 40m.
  8. At least two players from each team must start each half inside each 40m area.
  9. No marks paid on backwards kicks.
