Instead the players have been encouraged to express their own personalities and bring flair to the game with an open dress code designed to enhance the excitement around the one-night event.

NBA superstars including LeBron James and Russell Westbrook have developed a reputation for the clothes they wear when arriving at the arena for a game.

Six-time Superbowl winning New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady often receives rave reviews for his pre and post-game outfits, while Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is not afraid to test the boundaries with his style for post-match press conferences.

 

The AFLX competition will feature the League's biggest stars with Team Deadly, Team Bolts, Team Flyers and Team Rampage sides filled during Wednesday night's inaugural Draft.
