Team Africa was founded in Melbourne in 2012 to empower young African Australians through the sport of Australian Rules Football.

Team Africa made its playing debut at the annual AFI Harmony Cup in Melbourne. Players and officials included people from South Africa, Egypt, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Mauritius, Kenya and Liberia. The team played matches against Ireland, Turkey and an Australian indigenous team, with their unique jumper quickly becoming a crowd favourite.
