Asian footy future - call for peak Asian body
Authored by: Harley Vague on Wednesday, February 06 2013 @ 03:17 pm ACDT

AFL Asia is a hard one. AFL Europe has shown some immediate benefits because Europe is basically homogenious( within reason). politically, economically and geographically. You can travel the dimensions of Europe easily with a choise of planes, trains and automobiles. There are teams playing in neighbouring countries leagues until they can build their own domestic leagues. Most Asian countries are separated by ocean or mountains. It makes sense to focus on the individual countries but part of process of lifting the profile of individual leagues is international competition. So it will probably be a bit of a balancing act.
