As of early this morning, AFL Ireland Women’s on Twitter shared that a total of 15 Irishwomen have officially re-signed for the 2021 AFLW season.

This is fantastic to see and we’re sure the AFL Ireland community would be stoked with this.

We look forward to seeing the girls out on the park next year!

Footy is set to make a return to France in October.

A new league format will see two conferences bring together ten teams for the 2020/21 season.

The conferences have been split into the north and south of France.

Things are kicking off for the Budapest Bats.

The team shared a photo from training in what was just their second post on Instagram!

The Bats are the first Australian Rules Football club in Hungary. If you or any of your mates would like to get involved, follow and message them via their Instagram below or on Facebook here.
