THE ST. PETE SWANS PLAY 7-A-SIDE AUSSIE RULES FOOTBALL

JBB

Veteran ruck Jason Blackbourn helped power St. Petersburg to a 2-0 start in Week One Major League Footy action.

Affectionately known as ‘Aussie Rules’ or ‘footy’, Australian Football is the world’s oldest football code, and is the national sport of Australia.

The casual observer will see elements of many sports on display in the unique skill sets and game-play inherent to modern footy.

That hybridization makes Australian Rules Football unique, high-scoring, fast-paced and hard-hitting.

As members of Major League Footy, an independent competition of Australian Football in America, the St. Petersburg Swans play an ‘export’ adaptation of Aussie Rules, featuring 7-players-a-side (with three reserves), and game-play is on a rectangular field, generally 100 yards long x 53 yards wide.MLF-PLAYING FIELD
