USA Eagles jumper front

Australia and the United States enjoy strong people-to-people links based on common values and our deep historical and cultural bonds. The relationship is characterised by a very high flow of people in both directions (including tourists, students, long-term professional workers, temporary business travellers and working holiday makers).

According to Australia’s 2016 Census, there were over 86,000 US-born residents in Australia, with another 64,000 Australians that claim US ancestry.

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 American descent and keen to represent the USA, please contact us.

AFI is creating something much bigger than simply playing footy; it is cultivating a culture that welcomes and celebrates people from all over the world. Learning the game is only the first step in what AFI has allowed me to be a part of. I’ve gained heaps of friendships and have been able to share the game with a wider audience upon my return to America.
