About AFL

The AFL is the most prominent and only fully professional Australian rules football competition. It was founded in 1896 as the Victorian Football League and has since expanded to eighteen teams from all over Australia. The AFL is a winter sport, with its regular season running from March to September. The grand final, traditionally held on the last Saturday in September, is the most important day on the AFL calendar. AFL games are played on a rectangular field, with teams of eighteen players each. The objective of the game is to score more points than the opposition through goals (worth six points) and behinds (worth one point). The team with the most points at the end of the game wins. 

The AFL is a highly skilled and physically demanding sport. Players need to be able to run, jump, catch, and kick the ball effectively. They also need to have good stamina, as games are played for a full two hours.  It is a very popular sport in Australia, with strong spectator numbers and television ratings. It is also one of the world's most profitable professional sports leagues. The AFL gained the support of 16 club presidents in March 2008 to establish sides on the Gold Coast and Western Sydney. In late 2009, the AFL also announced plans to establish a new team in Tasmania. The Tasmanian side played its first season in the AFL in 2021. On May 14, 2017, Port Adelaide and the Gold Coast played a historic AFL match for premiership points in Shanghai, China, with a turnout of 10,114 at Jiangwan Stadium.  

This was the first time that a regular season AFL match had been played for premiership points outside Australia. Watching AFL live is an amazing experience. You get to enjoy live sports action and feel the energy of the crowd. From watching the best players battle it out on the field to savoring snacks from the stadium, there’s something for everyone to enjoy when taking in a game.
