The Irish Australian Rules Football Team, also known as the Irish Warriors, will be travelling to Melbourne this August to take part in the 2017 edition of the AFL International Cup (the World Cup of Australian Rules Football). We're an all-island team fielding athletes from all codes and disciplines.
Aussie Rules has been played in Ireland since 1999 and Ireland has previously won this competition on two occasions (2002 & 2011) and were finalists in 2014 and semi finalists in 2005 & 2008. Notwithstanding our National Team’s success at the highest level in international competitions in this sport, the team currently receives no state funding. Ours is a small association with limited resources, and therefore our National Team players fund their participation in the event themselves or through the support of personal sponsors and fundraising.
The cost for the team to participate in this competition is 75,000 euro.
The team has made a huge effort to raise funds over the last number of months , and now we are hoping to raise the final 10% of our funding via our Go Fund Me page and we need your help to get us on the road to the MCG, the holy ground of AFL!
The Grand Final will take place at the MCG on Saturday 19th August as a curtain raiser to the Collingwood v Geelong AFL Premiership Game.
Thank you for your support!
