The Australian National University Australian Rules Football Club (ANUAFC) was established in 1961.
Since formation, the club has several premierships in both mens grades. In 2001, the club extended its membership when it fielded a women’s team for the first time.
The club currently fields three teams, a senior and reserve men’s team in the AFL Canberra competition and a women’s team in the ACT Women’s Australian Football League. The ANUAFC aims to provide a safe and friendly environment for student and non–students to learn the game of Australian Rules Football whilst representing the Australian National University. The club also aims to encourage women in sport and promote the benefits that physical exercise can have on health and well being.
The ANUAFC is an university amateur football club. This being the case the club feels that it has a responsibility to provide its members with appropriate footballing facilities at a reasonable cost to its members. Membership fees for the ANUAFC are substantially cheaper than most other Australian Rules football Clubs in Canberra and surrounding areas. This ensures that students are able to partake in the game that they love at affordable prices.
