AFL9s Invitational tournament with $20,000 worth of prize money.

Byron Bay’s Cavanbah Centre is set to host the two-day AFL9s Invitational tournament with $20,000 worth of prize money on offer across mixed, women and men’s divisions.

After a two-year break the carnival will be played on 28–29 October 2022.

‘I am absolutely pumped to announce AFL Queensland will once again host the Byron Invitational,’ regional Queensland Program Manager, Kieran Daley, said.

‘The nine-a-side game provides a fast, free-flowing game to players seeking a social, non-contact alternative that is fun for all ages, genders and skill levels, and is played on a smaller field.

‘Food vans, live music and an alfresco lounge bar gives the competitions a festival feel, which culminates in a Saturday afternoon of finals.

‘Whether you are a footy team looking to enjoy an end-of-season trip, a seasoned AFL9s campaigner, or a group of mates wanting to enjoy a kick and some time in the sun – there is a division available for you.’
