Cadbury AFL 9s is a social, touch only version of AFL football. It is played outdoors on a rectangular field and requires the usual AFL skills, minus the tackling. You can kick goals, lay off a quick handball and take a diving mark.

AFL 9s has 9 players on the field per team, with unlimited interchange players.
In a Mixed league there is a minimum of 3 players of either gender on the field at all times. Having a few people unavailable for a few matches is inevitable, so the perfect number of players for a premiership winning AFL 9s team is 12, this ensures you will always have a full side.
Why Forfeit? If you are short on players you can bring along fill ins!
Everyone looks forward to their weekly game of AFL 9s so we try and do whatever we can to get a game going!
