AFI Latin America

Latin America AFL jumpers


The role of AFI Latin America is to grow and develop Footy 9s in the region. Our focus is on ensuring the sport is successful and sustainable in Latin America. As a result our outcomes in each country include:

Participation – introducing the sport to encourage participation at the grassroots level, with a focus on youth and community development.

Education – coaching the coaches and teaching the teachers. Our accreditation courses will give sports teachers and coaches the necessary skills and knowledge to be able to teach the game to their students.

Employment – creating opportunities to fund a full-time Development Manager in each country.

Talent – creating an annual AFI Latin America Combine where talented athletes have the opportunity to showcase their talent and, if selected, play in Australia.

National Team – giving the best players in each country the opportunity to compete against other countries in Latin America.


Following our Development Visit in 2016, AFI is in the process of introducing the sport into various countries in Latin America.
