Australian Football League: A Brutal, Giant Spectacle

Australians tend to love different sports, including cricket, soccer, rugby union, but nothing beats their passion for Australian Rules Football. It is a fast-paced, physically demanding sport that often resembles a mass brawl.

Australian Football or the AFL has the fourth-highest attendance of any domestic sports league in the world. It mainly consists of 18 teams playing each other over a 23-week regular season and a 4-week finals series. The season culminates in a Grand Final, in front of a hundred thousand fans at the historic Melbourne Cricket Ground.
