Bring on Byron 9s

As regular community football seasons across the nation draw to a close, the Byron Bay AFL9s Invitational is fast-approaching with its usual promise of fast footy action and picturesque off-field relaxation.

On the 28th and 29th of October, teams from across the country will battle it out at the Cavanbah Centre– a state-of the-art sporting facility just a few kilometres from Byron Bay’s Main Beach.

A share of $20,000 in prize money will be up for grabs for winning teams across mixed women and men’s divisions, making the weekend even sweeter for some.

The annual event, now in its eighth year, will also provide several off-field perks to guarantee a fantastic weekend for players, spectators and locals.  

Attendees can kick their feet up and enjoy food and live music.

Australian craft brewing company, Brick Lane Brewing will once again be field-side to keep competitors, officials and spectators refreshed.

AFL Queensland is thrilled to have the fantastic support of our Major Event Partner, Eximm Sport.

AFL9s is a speedy, non-contact, 9-a-side version of Australian football that is played on a smaller field.

Registrations are now open – good vibes a certainty.
