How long does an average AFL match go for?

During play, an AFL match goes for at least 80 minutes. The game can be disrupted by ball-ups, boundary throw-ins, free kicks, and after goals and behinds are scored, which extends play time. With all that considered, average AFL matches go for 100-120 minutes. But including when they are not playing, because of possible injuries and the breaks that occur between every quarter, it lasts up to 3 hours. Television broadcasts cover the game for this long, but may extend it for an extra 30-60 minutes if they televise previews, reviews, interviews, and, if the match is a particularly special one (e.g. Anzac day), entertainment and ceremonies, before and/or after the game.

How was afl invented?

Although previous forms had already been informally played, in 1858 a guy named Wills made up a similar game and drew up some rules to keep cricketers fit in winter.

Although Victorian at the time, from this AFL was eventually born.

This first game consisted of a ball and two goal posts: the first team (from Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar) won; it lasted three days, as the winner was the first team to score 2 goals and the goals were nearly a mile apart!!!!!

What is the age limit on children for tickets to the international rules series?

As footy has traditionally been 'a family affair', I doubt that there would be any age limit.

I remember taking a young baby along to the footy some decades ago: he was about 3 weeks old - people thought it was cute ;) - Hawthorn and Collingwood, I think, were the victims!!

If you are meaning 'Prices':

For most things in Melbourne, Australia, Adult tickets now start at 12 years of age, although student Concessions can also often apply.

Usually, those under 3 don't pay.

You would need to check with the specific event or agency handling the bookings of that particular event and place.

Why is there no drop kick in the Afl?

Because if you do a drop kick it is classified dropping the ball

No, that's not right. With the exception of a set shot at goal (which has never really improved over the years) a drop punt is far easier to master in the field of play. Particularly on the run.

What is a possession in AFL?

Possessions are also commonly known as disposals. Each time a player handballs or kicks the ball that is a disposal. Adding together the number of handballs and kicks a player has gives their disposals. This tells people how many times the player had the ball during the game.

How many players are on an AFL team and how many play at one time?

There are 18 players that are fielded/playing at any one time.

It has been the practice for quite some time for AFL [Australian Football teams] to top list 25 players as being available. Over generations of the Australian football game, the number of players 'in reserve' has changed immensely. For many decades, the team was permitted only 2 in reserve, but with the ruling that once they came on, they had to stay on - there was no 'interchange'. The interchange allowance rule came about 40 years ago, initially with only the two, but then soon permitted 4 interchange players. That has also gradually increased.

The key element, however, is that for generations now, there has been only 18 players permissable on field at any one time, although one large association used to play only 16, but that was rarely followed by any other leagues

When the AFL wanted to better promote the game internationally, especially to accommodate the smaller overseas fields, smaller markets and the smaller following, playing numbers in various countries have been reduced to 15 players and, thereafter, to as few as 9 players per side (to my knowledge).

Of course, even within Australia, many of the locals or people on picnics, etc., will knock up mock games with as many as they have available, and simply shorten the field.
