Asian footy future - East Asia Australian Football League kicks off
Authored by: sverik25 on Monday, February 11 2013 @ 04:42 pm ACDT

Whilst I acknowledge that this is great news for Asian football, I can't help but wonder if these are empty steps forward if only expats continue to play the game in many of the South-East Asian countries. Perhaps, there should be some limit on the number of expats allowed per team in the EAAFL - say no more than 50% of the players on a team?

That's the kind of thing Darrell Egan would like to see and is now discussing with the EAAFL organisers.  Hopefully we'll have more on this later.  Of course initially it's hard to put tight quotas on - you'd basically be telling the expats that they have to pay for themselves and the other half of the team to travel.  Maybe a quota of 2 or 3 locals in the first year or 2014 would be more realistic?
