Victorians now have the chance to be part of history, with the release of 2018 AFLX tickets.
AFLX is a new and different version of Australian Football and has been designed to take the traditional game from oval grounds to rectangular fields.
AFLX will still contain and showcase the unique and most thrilling aspects of Australian Football in a shortened format, with seven players on the field and three on the bench.
Melbourne is one of three cities chosen to host three tournaments, along with Adelaide and Sydney, across three separate days in February.
Each tournament will see six AFL clubs competing across two pool groups that culminate with the best teams competing in a tournament Grand Final.
Fans will enjoy seven matches in total at each tournament, including the Grand Final, with each match consisting of two ten minute halves.
Victorian’s will get their opportunity to witness history when Carlton, Essendon, North Melbourne, St Kilda, Hawthorn and Melbourne go head to head at Etihad Stadium on Friday February 16.
In addition to the excitement seen on the field, AFLX fans will see plenty of action off the field, with fireworks, DJs, in game commentary, roving performers, kids and family zones and giveaways a feature at all events.
