Feeling inspired watching the inaugural AFL Women’s Season?

So are we.

A sport dominated by men transcended the gender boundary in late 2016, when the 8 clubs set to star in the inaugural National Women’s Australian Football League were revealed.

On Feb 3rd, 2017, a capacity crowd of 24,500 packed into Ikon Park in Melbourne, Australia to watch the historic Round 1 clash between Carlton and Collingwood. SPOILER ALERT: The Lady Blue’s powered to a 7.4 (46) to 1.5 (11) victory! #GoBlues

With AFLW viewership consistently reaching unexpected numbers, comments from detractors have inevitably been lost in the fanfare… and we couldn’t be happier about that!

On March 25th, join the men and women of the Toronto Central Blues Australian Rules Football Club, as we celebrate the top teams vying for the first-ever AFL Women’s Premiership title. Stay tuned for details on time and location.

If you’re keen to have a kick at the glass ceiling, the Toronto Central Blues are always looking for new women (and men) to join our football club! Join us on Saturday, March 11th, at 9am at Lamport Stadium, OR find us on Facebook for updated practice information!
