AFI Latin America is pleased to announce that planning has commenced to stage the inaugural Latin America 9s.
The tournament will be held in Santiago, Chile and is open to national teams from Latin America.
The event follows on from the great success of the World 9s, Masters 9s and Darwin 9s, which have been crucial in developing Footy 9s in Australia.
We are delighted to bring this exciting new format to Latin America!
