Major League Footy was founded in 2016 and strives to grow the game of Australian Rules Football in the United States under a distinctly American game-play format and business model.

The league’s franchises embody the spirit of footy’s players, fans and communities, both in the USA and worldwide.

MLF’s overriding mission is to grow and increase the visibility of the world’s greatest team sport by creating fun, family-friendly events that showcase the sport being played at its highest level.
The League also strives to eliminate cultural, gender, age and financial barriers to those interested in learning, playing and enjoying our great game.

Major League Footy is an independent competition of Australian Rules football in the United States. Games are played on American football (gridiron) fields, and the competition is based on head-to-head, rather than tournament play.

Major League Footy is not affiliated with other organizations or governing bodies in the United States or Australia.
