Oztag is a team sport played across men's and mixed competitions. It is played on an outdoor field and games are 2 x 20 min halves. There may be a requirement for each team to fulfill duty requirements as per the draw.
Teams will be required to register a minimum squad of 8 players to participate at the EUGs. For teams to avoid a forfeit fine they will be required to field 5 players at the start of their scheduled game time. Teams are able to have 3 players cross accredit from another sport at the EUGs.
