Major League Footy is is a fast, free-flowing brand of Aussie Rules – customized for action-packed play on American football (gridiron)-sized fields.
Tailor-made to bring the best of Aussie Rules to America in a format that’s true to the spirit of footy (the world’s oldest football code) – while still also fresh, new and ultra-intense.
Major League Footy is a specific adaptation of rules originally developed in conjunction with Australian Football International, and intended expressly for America.
With seven players on the ground and three reserves, MLF makes it much easier to field a competitive team here in the States…while also retaining key elements of the traditional sport of Aussie Rules, such as ruck contests to begin each quarter and scoring – with the addition of supergoals and lightning-fast matches.
And, since it’s played on an American football-sized field – there’s no need to hunt for something approximating a cricket ground (in short supply in the US).
Much like Aussie Rules itself, MLF is a hybrid of playing formats. MLF is not traditional footy, it’s AFLX, it’s not ‘metro rules’ and it’s not AFI Footy 9s, from which the gameplay format is most closely based.
Instead, MLF features everything the world loves about Aussie Rules – impossible speckies, hard hits, great runs, precision passing and fantastic goals – all in a definitively more ‘Americanized’ format, with standardized rules across the league.
