About the AFL Masters
AFL Masters is football that allows mature players (over 35) the opportunity to participate in our great game of Australian Rules Football and to compete with similarly aged players in a safe, well organised and enjoyable atmosphere. Clubs exist throughout the Victorian metroplitan area playing every second Sunday during the season, with most clubs training on Wednesday evenings. The fortnightly draw allows for plenty of recovery time whilst allowing players and families plenty of time to themselves.
The opportunity to participate at a club level, to be competitive, maintain fitness and to above all enjoy your footy with your friends and family is the main motivation of the players in not only our competition but other states as well.
