AFL 9s is Australia’s newest social sport and has something for everyone.

It’s fast and free flowing but with ‘touch football’ style rules is suitable for any age or skill level.

Twenty one competitions, with possibly more to come, will kick off in early November, meaning there is a game of AFL 9s nearby.

After the success and popularity of last season, 13 new competitions will be in place this year with Geelong, Bendigo and Shepparton added to a host of metropolitan locations.


Importantly, AFL 9s is easy to play for both males and female, not too physically demanding and provides an environment that focuses on the social side of the game, where enjoyment and safety are a priority.

For those looking to be active and still enjoy a mid-week catch up with friends, this is the game for you.

The Rules of AFL 9s are easy to follow, regardless if your a seasoned footballer or someone who has never kicked a ball before.
