AFL Masters. Footy for Fun
Over the past 5 years Women’s Masters AFL has attracted players up to 68 years old with a wide range of skill level coming together to enjoy the classic Masters “Footy for Fun” experience.
AFLM has a national standardised set of modified rules designed to reduce the risks of injury and has the benefit of being acknowledged and supported by the AFL and the Australian Sports Commission.
While Vic Metro and WA are leading the way with local women’s competitions, players from all states are welcome at the National Carnival.
The current National carnival entry age is 34 and will increase to 35 by 2021 in line with the men’s competition.
In 2020 the National carnival will have two options on offer in the women’s competition, including an Over 34 division and an Over 40 division.
“I am delighted to be the patron of the Women’s AFL Masters National Carnival.”
“Early in life I developed a love of AFL football. It has brought my family and I much pleasure. In recent years I have also enjoyed supporting the development of Women’s AFL and we could not be more delighted with the development of the national AFL Women’s League, which provides exemplary promotion and provides us with wonderful role models for young girls.
“We now have pathways for female players to play from junior to elite and then onto Master’s football for those of you who love the game, want to stay fit and healthy and don’t want to give it away as you travel through life’s exciting journey.”

How do I join AFL Masters?
Easy! Just head over to the Find a Club section of our website, and get in touch with your local State Association, who will be able to put you in touch with the nearest AFLM team.
Are there any playing age requirements?
Generally, you need to be 35 years or older to play, but some local teams may allow younger players to participate in certain situations. To play in the National Carnival, players must turn 35 years or older in that current year. Our women’s competition in 2021 allows players to turn 34 or older in that current year.
Do you have any modified rules?
What will it cost me to play?
Costs vary depending on your local team or association. Generally, there is a small registration fee, plus a match fee for game days, to help cover insurance and ground hire, equipment costs, and other incidental fees. The National Carnival requires players to pay a registration fee, and they may also need to purchase merchandise such as playing jumpers, shorts and socks for the carnival.
