AFLX Explained
AFLX is 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:

  • The match is played on a soccer/rugby-sized rectangular field.
  • Teams of seven (plus seven on the bench with unlimited rotations).
  • Fast, free-flowing footy.
  • One umpire, no centre bounces, kick-ins from behind the goal line after all scores.
  • Last touch out-of-bounds free kick.
  • Two 10-minute halves with a two-minute break at half-time.
  • No marks paid on backwards kicks.
