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.

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).
