ANZAC Cup AFL logo

During the 2008 EU Cup in Prague, it was proposed to play a match in Villers-Bretonneux, to align with the Anzac Day ceremonies in the north of France.

Now an annual event, the first ANZAC Cup took place in Villers-Bretonneux in April 2009, with an Australian team playing the French national team in front of an enthusiastic crowd of locals and visiting Australians.

The aim of the ANZAC Cup is to not only honour the fallen, but also foster the unique relationship between Australia and the French community in this region.
