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.”
Nelson Mandela

The role of AFI Africa is to promote and develop Footy 9s in Africa.

Footy 9s is an exciting new sport that offers 3 great formats to choose from:

  • Men’s Footy
  • Women’s Footy
  • Touch Footy

Using sport as a powerful social tool, our aim is to make a positive difference to the health and well-being of both children and adults in Africa. It is well known that sport provides a powerful focus for social development at the community level.
