Australian Rules football, also known as Aussie Rules, is one of Australia’s most beloved sports. Born in the backyard of Australia, it is the only major sport to be invented in Australia. The governing body and national league of Aussie Rules is called the AFL. The league was founded as the Victorian Football League (VFL), but rebranded as the AFL in 1990 to reflect the growing number of non-Victorian based clubs joining the competition. Every year a total of the best 22 players from all teams in the AFL are strategically picked to make up the All-Australian team.
