Australian Rules football is Australia’s national football code, but the high-flying and athletic game has been adopted enthusiastically in the United States.
In October, 39 teams from across the USA converged in San Diego, CA for the 20th USAFL national championships. It's a testament to the hard work of the USAFL, and many Aussies who live and work in America, that our national game has spread so quickly among our American mates.
The weekend was a celebration of all things Australia in the United States, including the “100 years of Mateship” that binds our nations together and the strength of the contemporary relationship.
Congratulations to the Golden Gate Roos on their Grand Final victory in the men’s competition and the San Francisco Iron Maidens for taking out the women’s championship.
