Australian rules Football (also known as Australian rules football or Australian rules football) is physical contact. It is a kind of football and has similarities to Rugby, American football and Gaelic football. This is one of the modern forms of football where players have to move around the field and they can use any part of their body to move the ball.
In this sport, two teams, each consisting of 18 players, position themselves anywhere on the field, try to handle the ball in various ways, such as kicking, handball, running with the ball and passing it through the uprights, which is called a Goal. In this sport, the team must score more goals than the opponent to win the match.
The origin of Australian football is still unclear. In 1857, Tom Willis, one of the founders of Australian football, proposed a number of new rules for this winter sport to keep cricketers fit. On 7 August 1858, the Melbourne football club was founded. Gradually this sport flourished, and in 1866 an updated set of rules was introduced and competitions among clubs began.
In 1896, the Victorian Football League was founded, with various clubs playing: Carlton, Collingwood, Essendon, Fitzroy, Geelong, Melbourne, St Kilda and South Melbourne. By 1997, the competition consisted of 16 clubs with the League renamed the Australian football League.
This sport is used not only in Australia, but also in other countries. The Australian football League has a formal agreement with 13 other government bodies in different countries, and there are currently at least 20 leagues outside of Australia. The number of players outside of Australia is growing day by day.
