AFL 9s Sydney Classic returns this November

The Queens Park precinct will come alive with delicious food stalls, a pop-up bar, music and loads of entertainment for all players and spectators when the AFL 9s Sydney Classic returns this November.

The event will bring together the best community football and AFL 9s particiapnts from across Australia, to compete against each other. They will not only be playing for state bragging rights, but also the opportunity to compete for over $55k in prize money, including a first prize in the Open Division of $10k.

The Sydney University NEAFL team took home the $10,000 last year in the Open Division, after a tight contest against VFL team, Wandin Football Netball Club in the final. Wandin Football Netball Club took home $5k prize money as runner up in the Open division.

The AFL 9s Classic will take place on 25 and 26 November 2017 (Saturday and Sunday) with the following categories competing:

  1. Advanced – for highly skilled teams wanting to compete for the biggest cash prize;
  2. Intermediate – mixed teams for those more interested in having fun rather than competing at a competitive level
  3. Over 35s – for those aged 35 and above
  4. Men’s
  5. Women’s

All teams entered in any of the above five categories will play a minimum of three (3) games before finals.
