The world's largest Australian Football tournament—over 1,200 players from 40 teams will compete in 65 games in 2 days for the men’s and women’s division titles.
Teams will be competing for the Men’s First Division, Second Division, Third Division and Fourth Division titles and the Women’s First and Second Division titles.
Australian Rules Football is one of the fastest moving and most physically demanding games in the world. Australian Rules Football, or "footy", is played with the same intensity as American football, but with many differences. The game is played between two teams of 18 players on grass oval shaped fields 525 feet long and 360 feet wide. The game is also distinguished from other games by the fast, relatively free movement of the ball aided by no offsides or pass interference rules. Free kicks are awarded for any clean catch—known as a mark—of a ball which has been kicked more than 15 meters. Spectacular high marks, or "spekkies", long and accurate kicking and fast, fluid plays are the game's main attributes as a spectator sport.
The USAFL is the sport’s national governing body within the United States. The USAFL is divided into three geographic ‘regions’ within the United States: east, central and west and competition is played within these regions. The USAFL also selects and trains the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams that represent the United States in international competition. More information can be found at www.usafl.com.
