    One of the AFL’s worst-kept secrets is finally official, with the league announcing on Friday that AFLX will be part of the 2018 pre-season schedule.

    Three separate round-robin tournaments of the league’s new hybrid game will be played in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

    The tournaments will be held on the weekend before the shortened two-match pre-season series gets underway.
