We’re inviting you all to get to know our sport: Australian Football. Never heard of it before? Don’t worry, you’re certainly not alone.

In its native country, Australian Football is the number one spectator sport. The professional league, the AFL, is one of the five most-attended sports leagues in the world. In Germany, however, barely anyone knows the sport. We want to change that!

What’s it all about?

Australian Football is a fast and action-packed sport in which there is a role for everyone, no matter your gender, age, height, shape or whatever. Good teamwork is absolutely mandatory. And it’s simply great fun to play and to watch. Find out more here: About AF
