Our Story

Born out the ashes of two small AFL forums, AFL Online was developed in 2005 by passionate footy supporters as a footy blog and a hangout to discuss Australia’s number one sport.

AFL Online quickly grew into one of Australia’s most popular AFL websites and gain thousands of members sharing a similar love of football.

After a number of transformations, the site has gone back to it’s roots as a true AFL blog, posting our own views and delving into the lighter side of AFL.
