WHAT IS FOOTY?

Australian Rules Football (also known as ‘Aussie Rules’ or ‘Footy’) is a code of football featuring high-scoring, hard-hitting and free-flowing action from start to finish.

While the traditional game features 18 payers per team – playing on a cricket sized oval – a new adaptation of the sport for American football fields is known as Footy 9s.

THE BASICS OF FOOTY 9s
Footy 9s is an exciting new take on traditional Aussie Rules football – adapted for the USA!

  • Footy 9s matches are played on American Football fields.
  • Each team consists of 9 players – 3 forwards, 3 midfielders and 3 backs.
  • The game starts with a jump ball in the middle of the field.
  • The object is to score more goals than the opposing team.
  • A goal is scored when the ball is kicked through the posts. There are no behind posts.
  • The ball is moved around the field by either a kick, handball or forward pass.
  • Players can go anywhere on the field and there is no off-side rule.
  • As in basketball, players must bounce the ball when they run (every 10 yards).
