Have you ever wanted to pull on your national jumper and represent your country?
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 Greek descent and keen to represent Greece, please join the Team Greece Facebook group.
The Greek Team of the Century was a representative team chosen in 2004. The criterion for selection was that any Greek blood whatsoever constituted eligibility for the team.
