Rome Redbacks Australian Rules Football, the very sport you've been waiting for.

Thank you to our Sponsors, so far for 2021. Visit them and do business, they are awesome !!

The Rome GA Redbacks is the newest team in the United States Australian Football League for 2018.

The team is named after one of Australia's most venomous spiders, the Australian Redback Spider. The Rome Redbacks is about bringing a great new team sport, a game of Aussie Rules Football, to Floyd County and in particular the Rome GA area. In doing that we will be helping people become fitter and healthier, make plenty of new friends and have a great time. No it is not rugby, we knew you thought that!!! It is far more fun and exciting.

The Rome Redbacks will be initially playing a safe friendly non tackle version of Aussie Rules Football that is completely safe called AFLS. It is a game that is high scoring and tons of fun. It can be played by anyone 13yrs or older 7 a-side or more and is primarily played as co-ed. AFLS which has been developed by our friends at the Atlanta Kookaburras, just to our south. The Atlanta Kookaburras have been part of the sporting landscape for 20 years. So we thought it was time we got a team together here in Rome. You never know one day we might have a team good enough to beat them right here. Won't that be a huge day for Rome GA?

And Aussie's as you might have heard love to socialize, and the Rome Redbacks will be no exception, with planned fun events along the rivers, nights out on the town and events the whole family can enjoy. Aussie Rules Football, or just "footy" as its called down there to the Aussies is about a few laughs, a few social drinks and a bunch of great mates. It is Australia's most played sport with elite men's and now women's teams competing for a Premiership Cup in September.

Once you play you will never be the same and will be hooked for ever.

So sign up for a practice game, training session or come along to a social event and meet a whole new bunch of new and interesting people.
