The International Cup fixtures for 2017 have been released!

The 8 teams from Europe will be joined by 18 others from across the globe all competing for the ultimate prize of being crowned IC Champions.

For the first time the men’s fixture will be played across two divisions with 10 teams in Division 1 (including the Irish Warriors, GB Bulldogs and French Coqs) and 8 teams in Division 2 (including the Croatian Knights and German Eagles).

The women’s competition will have 8 teams (including the Irish Banshees, GB Swans and European Crusaders) and will be split into two pools.

The women’s grand final is to be played at Etihad Stadium as a curtain-raiser for the Round 22 clash between Carlton and Hawthorn. The men’s grand final is to be played at the MCG as a curtain-raiser for the match between Collingwood and Geelong.

The tournament runs from Saturday 5th until Saturday 19th August.

Head of Community & International Development, Grant Williams said that the AFL was looking forward to welcoming the players, coaches and officials from the 18 men’s teams and eight women’s teams to Melbourne to participate in the International Cup.

“The men’s divisional structure has been created based on past performances in an attempt to produce a competition that is as even as possible and to provide the best development opportunity for all teams and players,”.

“We are also thrilled to have eight women’s teams competing in 2017.”
