AFL Quebec is the governing body of Australian Rules Football in Quebec. Based in Montreal, it is comprised of both a contact and a non-contact league. AFL Quebec prides itself on being one of the fastest growing and best-run leagues in Canada and North America.
AFL Quebec Contact League consists of three clubs: West Island Giants, Montreal Demons, and Montreal City Blues. The non-contact League currently consists of two clubs: Old Montreal Dockers, and the Plateau Eagles,
Like most leagues outside of Australia, AFL Quebec is a nine-a-side league. This is for numerous reasons such as promoting local player development and field availability. AFL Quebec plays the vast majority of its regular and final series games at Vanier College.
The AFL Quebec Regular Season generally runs from May until early September. This is followed by a series of finals games to run until around late September.
AFL Quebec has both Men’s and Women’s representative eighteen-a-side teams - the Quebec Saints. They compete against other representative teams across Canada and the United States. These games occur throughout the season in one-off games or, more commonly, at an invitational tournament. Such a tournament is the annual AFL Quebec Women’s Tournament. The Saints also participate in both the AFL Canada and USAFL National tournaments.
