AUSTRALIA & CZECH REPUBLIC
Australia and the Czech Republic share strong people-to-people links. Since the Second World War, there have been two major waves of immigration: after the communist takeover of Czechoslovakia in 1948, and following Soviet occupation in 1968. According to 2016 census figures, around 24,500 Australians identify as having Czech ancestry.
Our aim is to work with the Czech community to field a team in the AFI World Cup, an event which is held annually in Melbourne. The format of the World Cup is 9-a-side, mixed (men & women) and non-contact.
If you are of Czech descent and keen to represent the Czech Republic, please contact us.
