    AFLX is a new, fast-paced version of Australian rules football, set to be played in three mini-tournaments during the pre-season. The first will be played on Thursday, February 15 at Hindmarsh Stadium in Adelaide, followed by one on Friday, February 16 at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne and then Saturday, February 17 at Allianz Stadium in Sydney.

    The tournaments being played on Thursday and Friday will begin at 6:40pm (AEDT), while the tournament to be played on the Saturday in Sydney will begin at the earlier afternoon timeslot of 4:10pm (AEDT).

    Each of the three mini-tournaments will feature six teams. They are then split into two pools at each venue, with the winner of each pool then to play a grand final at the end of the tournament.

    While AFLX has received a mixed reaction on social media, it’s the AFL’s supposed answer to the short-form sports phenomenon (T20 cricket, rugby sevens) along with being able to expand AFL around the world as it’s played on rectangular fields rather than ovals.

    The games will be split into two halves of ten minutes, with seven players on the field at a time.

      I am keen to see it, thought i would get in before the knockers.

      If it takes off expect to see specialist 7’s players that are not necessarily great at 18 a side.

      Xavier Ellis is the sort of player who springs to mind who may have excelled in this type of game.

      Any idea whether it will be available for replay on the AFL site?

      While I despise all the gimmicky “game-day experience” elements (neon goal posts, acrobats, and other truly embarrassing embellishments), I’d enjoy the opportunity to see Freo’s latest draftees/recruits in action. But I’ll struggle to be home into even for the 5:30 game against Port.

      I’m definatly going to watch but I can’t see how the dogs could have shown any less interest in the comp.
      Didn’t expect to many of the stars to line up but all the 2017 draftees,2016 draftees,3 rookie listed players plus Redpath and Webb is telling.
      Hardly an inspiring line up lol.
