Play at SUANFC – The Australian Football Club of Sydney University and the Inner West

We offer our members, students or community members of the inner west, the chance to play AFL in an inclusive environment, welcoming of all skill levels and experience.

The club is a ‘home away from home’ for many interstate players coming to Sydney to study or for work. The club welcomes inquiries from interstate players and those new to Sydney.

We also welcome non-playing members interested in assisting around the club. As a club run to a great extent by playing members, we welcome any volunteers passionate about AFL, and who are keen to help us continue to play a part in this great narrative that has been going since 1887!
