AIRDATE | AFLX returns to SEVEN with new format for 2019 - FULL BROADCAST GUIDE
AFLX will burst onto Seven in 2019 with the ultra-fast and thrilling competition featuring four new teams, as well as the first ever AFLX Draft.
The teams are set to be selected on Wednesday February 6, with the four captains building their ‘dream’ teams at a star-studded draft.
Team captains Jack Riewoldt, Patrick Dangerfield, Eddie Betts and Nat Fyfe will make their selections in a schoolyard-style format from a pool of 100 of their fellow elite players, with each captain allowed a limit of four players per AFL club as part of their 14-man squad.
Fans will be eager to see who is lucky enough to receive the ultimate choice of all – the opportunity to pick the number one drafted player.
The captains will be supported by their already appointed vice-captains, with Patrick Cripps suiting up for Riewoldt’s RAMPAGE, Luke Hodge supporting Dangerfield’s BOLTS, Shaun Burgoyne joining Betts’ DEADLY and Marcus Bontempelli pulling on the boots for Fyfe’s FLYERS.
Once finalised, the teams will turn their attention to Marvel Stadium, where they will come face-to-face for an electric night of football.
Showcasing the most thrilling aspects of the game and featuring some of the league’s most talented players, AFLX 2019 will see four teams compete in a round-robin format culminating in a Grand Final between the top two teams.
Consisting of two 10-minute halves per game and including the ever-enticing 10-point ‘super’ goal, fans will be treated to what is sure to be an exhilarating display from some of the AFL’s best.
