The 9th Annual Asian Championships…

Posted by Vietnam Swans on April 22, 2008

The 9th Annual Asian Australian Football Championships is approaching – and the Vietnam Swans have just received an official invitation from hosts, the Singapore Wombats. It will be held on 6 September 2008 at the Singapore Polo Club. According to the blurb, the Polo Club is located in the rain forest belt of Singapore and it’s facilities and playing surfaces are “unsurpassed” in Singapore. Last year, the Polo Club hosted the 2007 Asian Gaelic Games which featured over 600 competitors on 3 fields.

With these facilities, the Singapore Wombats hope to involve even more teams than last year’s ten teams. The game format is likely to be:

  • 4-5 preliminary matches to determine which two teams will play off in the Grand Final
  • 14-16 players per match with a restricted number on the bench
  • 12-15 minute halves for each preliminary match
  • Grand Final to be 14-16 per side playing 2×20 minute halves

The proposed schedule is:

Friday 5 August 2008

  • Day: Asian Championships Golf Day
  • Evening: Asian Championships Opening

Saturday 6 September

  • Day: Asian AFL Championships
  • Evening: Asian Championships Sportsman & Awards Night

Sunday 7 September

  • Asian Champs Brunch and Live AFL Football Finals
