Why Footy 9s in Cameroon

Participation in sport improves mental and physical health, enhances community well-being, and contributes significantly to give our young women and men a better path in life.

Footy 9s and the Australian Identity
Sport is widely believed to be integral in defining the Australian identity. Australians have a remarkable and enduring affection for sport – loving to both play and watch.
Australian Football International (AFI) strongly believes that Footy 9s has huge potential to become a truly international sport. Indeed, one of our major aims is the eventual inclusion of Footy 9s in the Olympic Games.
Australian Football has been an excellent platform for Australians indigenous to express their skills, unique talents, and abilities off and on the pitch.
