Play AFL 9’s At Metricon Stadium

AFL Queensland and the Gold Coast SUNS are teaming up to offer Queensland footy fans the chance to play AFL 9s at Metricon Stadium this Saturday, May 26th prior to the SUNS v Port Adelaide game.

The AFL 9s games will operate under a ‘Drop-In’ format.  You simply register to play, turn up at Metricon Stadium on the day and AFL Queensland will arrange a team for you.  Everyone will get to enjoy about an hour of AFL 9s fun in a social environment, and will get a ‘Gold B’ reserved ticket to watch the SUNS play. 


AFL 9s is the 9-a-side, touch version of AFL.  It’s non-contact, with a focus on fun, fitness and socialising for footy players of all (or no!) skill levels.  Check out our online video:
