This year’s Champs will be preceded by the inaugural “All-Asian Cup” on Friday 14th October – a 3-team local player tournament.
AFL Asia has this year agreed to allow seconds teams to compete at this year’s Champs, with Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam set to enter teams in both first and second divisions for the first time.
AFL Indonesia has also confirmed it will enter its Indonesian Garudas AFLIC team in second division, featuring local players from Jakarta, Borneo and Bali. This will be the first time a full local team has competed independently in the Champs.
