AUSTRALIAN ARMY FOOTBALL

AFFILIATED WITH THE AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE FORCE FOOTBALL FEDERATION  

The Home Of Army Football in Australia

Formerly known as Australian Army Soccer Football Association, Australian Army Football (AAF) is the governing body for all football in the Australian Army.  

Presidents Words

The 2016 ADFFF National Championships saw our Women’s Team achieving continued success on the field as Champions of the ADF Women’s division, now five years running. Although both the Men’s and Veteran’s Teams were not able to replicate the success of the Women’s team, all three teams gained a high number of individual players selected for the ADFFF. Again, it’s great to add many new faces to our playing ranks, which continually makes us stronger. Our congratulations also to MAJ Steve McNaughton for his appointment to the Vice Presidency of the ADFFF.

How do we improve for 2017? All past, present and future players are reminded of the importance of gaining early release from your Unit (not leaving it until the last moment) and being football conditioned for the National Championships. This means maintaining soldierly discipline, playing as regularly as your current unit tempo allows, keeping fit and injury free throughout the year and most importantly engaging with your Chain of Command early about your intention to trial for the AAF in October 2017.

Although fully committed to Army's football cause, our Committee is a small one and we rely on the wider Army football community to keep the AAF moving forward. I encourage you all to contribute to AAF innovations, sponsorship and activities throughout the season by keeping in contact with us.

As always, we are most thankful for the ongoing support and generosity from our Silver and Bronze sponsors Phat Returns, Defence Bank and the Coogee-Clovelly-Randwick RSL.
Keep spreading the word about Army Football and I hope to see all of you at 2017 National Carnival. 

 

Happy footballing!
