About usThe Blacks have an unsurpassed record in Australian amateur football history.
THE WORLD’S GREATEST FOOTBALL CLUB
Whilst we are disciples of the concept that there is far more to life than footy, we also figure that if we’re going to kick some pigskin around against bogans for a few hours on a Saturday arvo then we may as well try to win.
104 flags across our history across all grades is a testament to that.
However, the record books do not tell the full story of what makes “Bob Neil” tick. As our Vice Presidents say from experience, it is the combination of pure, clean sport mixed with the friendships that last a lifetime that makes the AUFC. These professional and personal connections will be invaluable to you in whatever job you are ever likely to hold in the future across the state, the country or the world.
We remain true to the ideals of amateur football, hence our motto. As the SAAFL has unfortunately morphed over the years to become amateur in name only, we strongly uphold the same principles of amateur sport that the first AUFC team in 1906 abided by and upon which the SAAFL was originally founded. This is enshrined in our constitution and it makes success all the more glorious.
We look forward to the year ahead with anticipation, the Blackers will be “fit” in 2021 there is no doubt!
