Footy In America


Footy 5000

Growing the game from down under up here, the good people at Footy 5000 are dedicated to helping develop the game of Australian Rules Football at a sustainable local level to facilitate the growth of the sport, as a whole in the USA. We here at Fort Myers Footy are proud to be affiliated with this initiative!

Footy 5000
The American League


The United States Australian Football League currently has close to 50 teams across the USA, from Florida to Washington State and from New England to Hawaii! And though Florida already has three teams, in Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, and Tampa Bay, one day, soon we hope, a team from Southwest Florida will be able to join the league and compete for premiership points! Check out the USAFL Web Site to learn more.

The fine folks at Play Aussie are expat Australians who want to help spread the great game here in the USA. They offer just about everything you need to get started in their Online Store.
