If you are just interested in watching the games and learning about the game, we play Metro footy on Friday nights down at Waveland oval. These games start at 6pm and consist of 4, 20 minute quarters (or thereabouts). Grab a picnic rug and head down to the field to watch the action unfold.
Representative games are held according to the MAAFL/USAFL fixtures and are usually played on a Saturday. Games are either played at Waveland or Rogers Park. Check the website for details of these inter-city clashes.
We are also very grateful for any help in umpiring, goal and boundary umpiring, scoring, keeping time and making sure Wrigleyville aren’t cheating. No experience necessary so if you are down watching, come learn the skills of Aussie Rules football scoring (a scratch mark in one column means goal and in another means point… easy!)
Also, check the website/facebook for upcoming events. Subscribe to our newsletters and come along to our functions. The CAFA runs several official functions each year (AFL Grand Final, Australia Day, ANZAC Day) and we have a number of smaller outings each year. Also, after every Metro and home MAAFL game, presentations are held at our sponsor bar (Brownstone tavern). Come along these nights and listen to the stories!
