Australian Rules Football (also known as ‘Aussie Rules’, ‘AFL’ or ‘Footy’) is a code of football featuring high-scoring and free-flowing action from start to finish.

However, Australian Football has struggled to develop outside of Australia partly because the game is highly resource intensive. A game requires the use of a large cricket oval (which generally are not available for such use), many players (44 including interchanges) and 6 officials.

To find a space big enough for 18-per-side, many international leagues play matches in locations that are less than ideal, with limited facilities for players or spectators.
