About Us - Australian Amateur Football Council - GameDay
Western Australia joined after the war when its definition of amateur football was brought into line with the other states. The highlight for amateur league states was the football carnivals held every three years. The final carnival was held in and the AAFC disbanded in The AAFC was reformed in From , interstate games against Western Australia stopped while South Australia and Victoria continued.
In commemoration of 100 years of amateur football
For males and females 16 years and older seeking a high-standard football game, the league provides a competitive competition for those not wishing to undertake the commitment required by the WAFL training. For years, generations have moved through its ranks, with many notable names and leaders nationally having kicked the ball in the amateur league throughout its storied history. I was very fortunate in my second year of colts to win a Grand Final by a point against Collegians — that was a very special moment. Mr Mzungu said he remembered as a young colt watching the league side play and enjoying the strong community feel at the club. Certainly there was a bit of pressure from across the fence but that was part of the fun.
The council was formed in The council organises amateur interstate and international representative matches, and is responsible for several amateur leagues, including the Victorian Amateur Football Association , South Australian Amateur Football League and Western Australian Amateur Football League. Not all Australian amateur leagues are represented: the Northern Tasmanian Football Association has been a member in the past and a U23 All-Australian team played an open Tasmanian team in Although its position on the ANFC nominally meant the amateurs were required to play under the national Laws of Australian Football , the amateurs have played with minor differences in the rules: most notably, the amateurs have had an order-off rule since the s,  and presently use a metre penalty instead of the metre penalty used in professional leagues. Player transfer rules also differ: while players are required to sign transfers when switching between professional leagues, they do not need to do so for amateur leagues affiliated with the AAFC; however, during player registration, most leagues affiliated with the AAFC request statements of a clean history no major reports or lifetime bans and that they are not being paid to play elsewhere.
