Oceania Four years on from the cancelled 2020 International Cup, Queensland will play host to Australian rules football with an international flavour when around 500 people representing teams from across the Pacific region descend on Maroochydore in November.

The AFL International Cup was first staged in 2002 and held every three years through to 2017. The 2020 event was cancelled because of the pandemic and then the AFL announced that the 2023 edition would not be held.

The AFL decided to split the event into three regional championships to be played this year – and the Pacific Cup along with the Transatlantic Cup (Canada, August) and the Asia Cup (location TBC, November) – is the resulting replacement for the beloved worldwide format.
