AFLW Young Guns


The AFL Women’s league is Australia’s national Australian rules football league for female players. The first season of the league began in February 2017 with 8 teams, expanded to 10 teams in the 2019 season, and expanded to 14 teams in the 2020 season. Through The Footy Factory, several AFLW athletes are working with the Centennial Tigers to celebrate this sport. This page will continue to be updated with ambassadors!
