Deadly Roos AFL logo

AFI successfully lobbied for the inclusion of Australian Football as a demonstration sport in the 2011 Africa Games in Maputo, Mozambique.

We took an indigenous team of at-risk youth (the Deadly Roos) to Africa, visiting Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa. The trip was seen as a great opportunity to inspire these young men and help turn their lives around. Apart from playing matches, they conducted junior coaching clinics as well, sharing their love of the game with the children of Africa.
