This is the official website for Oztag Australia.
OZTAG football is the latest craze in recreational sport that now has competitions running all over Australia, with the largest areas located in Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra.
It is a non-tackling game. Normal dimensions of the field are 70 metres x 50 metres. Two fields will fit on one rugby or soccer field. Eight players in each team are on the field at any one time. Players wear shorts with a Velcro patch on each side. A strip of cloth is attached to the Velcro, known as a tag. The object of the game is to score tries. Defenders prevent this by tagging the ball carrier, removing the tag from the shorts.

“Oztag Tens” is a new, exciting variation of Oztag played on a full size field (100mx65m). There are 10 players on the field at any one time, with unlimited interchange. An exciting addition to Tens includes a post try power play, much like a conversion instead the scoring team has 1 play to score an extra point - 1 forward pass can be made during this power play (2 points awarded).
2 players on either team will be given 2 different coloured tags. Those two players may sub at any time. There must only be 2 players at a time on the field with those alternate tags.
The defensive team must remove both tags from a player running the ball with the alternate tags. If only one is removed, the referee will call play on and he may continue to run the ball until the second tag is removed. The ball player will then play the ball where the second tag was taken.
Oztag Tens competitions will be introduced in Winter 2017 as an alternative to those who want to play a non-contact version of Rugby League.
