“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
The role of Australian Football International (AFI) is to grow and develop Footy 9s, both nationally and internationally, with a focus on community development. Our major aim is to empower people and communities through sport.
AFI is in the process of seeking the inclusion of Footy 9s in the 2026 Commonwealth Games in Victoria and the 2032 Olympic Games in Brisbane.
