Featuring the best online posts from the AFL Europe community, PSS International Removals Presents: Around the Grounds – Socials Edition.

It was a big week for AFL Europe on socials with the Wandsworth Demons announcing their ‘Big Freeze at the C’, AFL Germany presented ‘Footy around Germany’ and Brisbane Lions AFLW coach, Craig Starcevich, joined a team in Switzerland for training.

But first, we can all breathe a sigh of relief as the Australian Football League made a return over the weekend.

If you’re living outside of Australia and looking for a way to watch it live or on-demand, make sure to check out Watch AFL.

If you’re unsure what Australian Football is, the Greater Western Sydney Giants have you covered with this new video.

The Wandsworth Demons last Monday announced their fifth Big Freeze on the C’ campaign in support of Fight MND.

The Demons will be holding a number of fundraising activities over the next few weeks that will raise money towards finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease.

The Polish Devils have recently joined a number of teams in Europe who have been lucky enough to recommence training.

The Devils are welcoming new players so if you’re interested in getting involved with Australian footy in Poland, message the team via their Instagram.

We’d highly recommend it!

AFL Switzerland were excited to share that as of last week, all of their teams have now resumed training.

Basel Dragons, Geneva Jets, Winterthur Lions and the Zurich Giants can all be seen in action in the Facebook post below.

The Basel Dragons (top left) were fortunate enough to be joined at training by former VFL/AFL player and Brisbane Lions AFLW coach, Craig Starcevich.

Starcevich played over 140 games in the VFL/AFL for Collingwood and Brisbane, which included a grand final win in 1990.

The Dragons coaching staff and players benefitted greatly from Starcevich’s footy knowledge and experiences, as he assisted with training and even got involved for a kick!

With training back, the AFL Switzerland committee have announced that they will be working hard to get clubs playing games again as soon as possible.

As well as this, AFL Switzerland yesterday welcomed new team Rapperswil-Jona Australian Football Club as they held their first ‘come and try’ training session.

A great effort to all involved and we’re excited to see more trainings follow!

Found out how she got this nickname by watching below!

The Sesvete Redlegs look to be enjoying being back at training.
