just doing a bit of promotion for the afl uk, if u fancy playing or just going to watch an afl game then there is a national comp in the uk, they are always on the lookout for new players and fans, the leagues are broken up into areas, north, south, east, west and central uk, each comprising of 4-6 teams. its a shorter version of the game with 9 a side played on rugby pitches, the games are generally played on a sat or sun with all games in a league played on same day at same ground so u get to see 2 or 3 games, all for free, and most teams put on a bbq and entertainment for kids so its a great family day out.
if u need any more info just let me know
