World 9s logo

The World 9s is open to teams from Melbourne’s multicultural communities. There are two simple criteria for player eligibility – that a player was born in the country or has a parent or grandparent born in the country which he is representing.

Through the annual AFI Harmony Cup, we have extensive experience in working with many communities in Melbourne, including Albania, Chile, Croatia, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Macedonia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Samoa, South Africa, South Sudan, Spain, Switzerland, Tonga, Turkey, Vietnam and Wales.
