Deadly Roos AFL footy logo

Please note: as we emerge from Covid-19 restrictions we will confirm the dates of our Africa Tour later in 2020.

Want to make a difference? Our 2021 trip to Africa is a tremendous opportunity to help develop Australian Football in Africa. The Deadly Roos will play two matches in South Africa and also conduct a number of junior coaching clinics for children as well, a fantastic experience!

The team will depart Australia in October 2021. We are now seeking expressions of interest from people wishing to be involved – players, coaches, umpires and supporters – to join the team.

Apart from the footy, you will also have many opportunities to experience traditional African song, dance and culture. And, of course, no visit to Africa would be complete without seeing the ‘Big Five’ — Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo and Leopard!
