You won’t be playing for a team ‘down under’ if you sign up to AFC Portchester’s potential new side.

But the creation of an Aussie Rules outfit at the Crest Finance Stadium is fair dinkum - all you need to do is register your interest at this stage and you could soon be saying g’day to your new team mates.

A new Australian Rules Football League is being set up in association with AFL London League side Portsmouth Pirates.

We need to put together a squad of 15 players for the nine-a-side version of the sport, which will see the AFC Portchester Aussie Rules team take on at least three other sides in the new league set up.

The Pirates will be providing coaching help to the new team and those who sign up will also be able to join the Pirates at their training sessions to help improve their Aussie Rules skills.

AFC Portchester will also be hosting a round of the new league competition, which will take place during the close season for our normal football activities.
