The AFL has confirmed ticket prices for the inaugural AFLX competition with tickets to Fremantle’s round robin games tournament at Hindmarsh Stadium in Adelaide going on sale to Freo members and the general public through Ticketek on Monday 22 January.
Adult tickets will cost $15 with concessions at $10, while juniors under 12 will get in for free. All tickets will be general admission.
The modified game will be played in three cities across three nights, with six AFL clubs represented in each competition.
Fremantle will face off against Adelaide, Port Adelaide, Collingwood, Geelong and West Coast in the Thursday night tournament, which will be followed by separate tournaments in Melbourne and Sydney on the Friday and Saturday.
There will be no AFLX games played in Perth in 2018.
Ten quick facts about AFLX
1. Played on a rectangular field (approx. 70m width x 110m length) with four posts at each end (as per a normal AFL field). Ground markings will showcase X as the centre square and 40m arcs.
2. Two field umpires, two boundary umpires and one goal umpire at each end of the ground.
3. Ten players per team, seven on field at all times and three on the interchange bench. No restrictions on player rotations.
4. 10-minute quarters or halves depending on the tournament format.
5. Free kick against for last touch out of bounds.
6. Kick-ins from behind the goal line after all scores.
7. No marks paid for backwards kicks (except in forward 40m area).
8. Quarters commence with a ‘ball up’ in the centre and at least two players from each team starting inside the 40m arc.
9. Free shot from forward 40m arc – directly in front for deliberate rushed behinds.
10. 10-point super goals when goals kicked on the full from outside the 40m arc.
