Convicts AFL logo

The Australian Convicts were created by AFI to give players from local clubs across Australia the opportunity to play overseas and help grow the game internationally.

The first Convicts traveled to Europe in 2003, playing matches in England, Spain and Germany. The Convicts have also helped grow the game in South Africa, USA, Canada and South America (Chile, Argentina & Brazil).

Apart from playing against international teams, a highlight of all Convicts trips is the opportunity to run coaching clinics and donate footballs to local children.
