So none of what we're suggesting re the International Cup prevents individual Asian nations from fielding sides at the IC or in the EAAFL, it purely is to provide a fallback when numbers are insufficient for the huge cost that is attending the IC.

I've also thought it would be great for South America to enter a combined side at the International Cup, because they are so isolated from the rest of the international footy community and seem a long way off being able to have any one country make it.  It would be a great way for the few locals in Brazil, Chile and Argentina to come together, represent their broader region, make contact with the AFL, build relationships with the AFL, amongst each other, amongst leagues in Australia, and go home inspired to next time hopefully return with their own national side.
