Australian Football International Cups
Welcome to the World Footy News home page for the Australian Football International Cup tournaments, regarded as the pinnacle of international Aussie Rules. Also now known as the AFL International Cup. In many ways the forerunner was the Arafura Games in Darwin which saw several international sides compete. New Zealand's Will McKenzie then pushed for a World Cup which ultimately became the International Cup. Currently the players are primarily amateur and are not expatriate Australians. Although not strictly required by the rules, the few international players in the AFL are unlikely to be released from professional commitments and may not be sought by their country anyway.
A women's Division was held for the first time at the 4th Cup (2011) as well as using a seeding round to separate the men into two divisions.
Thus far Australia has not competed given the relatively early stage of development of the game outside of its ancestral home, although a deliberately non-full strength Australian indigenous and multicultural side has now competed in the women's division. From this page you can access our main page for each of the Cups, or view the summary of finishing order.
