Have you ever wanted to pull on your national jumper and represent Great Britain?

Playing Footy 9s gives you an opportunity to do just that! It’s a fun and exciting new sport, with both full contact (tackling) and non-contact (no tackling) options to choose from.

If you are of British descent and keen to represent Great Britain, please join the Great Britain Bulldogs Facebook group.

Founder, Great Britain Bulldogs

I’m really proud to be involved with AFI as the founder and captain of the Great Britain team. The World 9s was incredible to be a part of and a sign of the outstanding progress that AFI has made. To be a part of such a well organised and flourishing community event was an unforgettable experience that we are all looking forward to being a part of next year! We have seen the potential for this version of the game to grow in different ways and we can’t wait to see this continue.
