The Sacramento Australian Football Club (SAFC), a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Organization, was founded in 2009 and is managed by a group of passionate American and Australian volunteers. The SAFC has been an active presence in the community for over eight years and has had over 300+ individuals join our multiple levels of Australian Football Competition. The SAFC offers 3 levels of competition to members:
- SacFooty is a social, non-contact version of the game designed to introduce new players to the sport. Typically, the SAFC hosts a spring and summer SacFooty league with post game social gatherings and awards. For more information, or to join a league, click here.
- The Sacramento Australian Football League (SacAFL) offers both mens and womens full-contact games locally with a 10-12 week metro season. For more information or to join the SacAFL, click here. The SacAFL players, if they wish, may participate at a national level.
- National Competition Teams, the Sacramento Suns and Sacramento Lady Suns are the full-contact representative teams which compete against other teams registered in the USAFL. These games take place locally, regionally and at the USAFL Nationals Tournament every October. With over 35 clubs across the USA and more than 60 teams, the USAFL Nationals is an action packed weekend. The 2018 USAFL National Tournament is to be held in Racine, WI!
The SAFC training sessions and games are held at local Sacramento area parks.

What is Footy?
Australian Rules Football, otherwise known as footy, is unique to Australia and its roots traceable back to the early forms of Rugby and Gaelic Football. When asked, many of our players will describe footy as a combination of soccer, basketball, football and rugby.....however, it truly is a unique sport and the best way to find out more is to see it in action!

SAFC Youth Clinics
The Sacramento Australian Football Club, as a part of its overarching mission to build a thriving Australian Football community in Sacramento, has held several introductory footy clinics for students in several of the local school Physical Education classes. As part of this effort, members of the Sacramento Suns & Lady Suns volunteer to teach kids the basics of Ausball (the modified tag version of Footy).
