AFL Papua New Guinea (AFL PNG) looks after developing AFL junior and senior programs in PNG, including the National Player Pathway which leads all the way from the village to the MCG. The PNG Mosquitoes have been one of PNG’s most successful national teams over many years. Wearing the black, red and gold in matches both on PNG soil and in Australia they have been hard to beat for more than 30 years. The PNG Mosquitoes dominated the Arafura Games and remained undefeated in 1995, 1997 and 1999. However, despite making it to four Grand Finals, they have only claimed one International Cup, losing to Ireland in 2002, New Zealand in 2005, defeating New Zealand in 2008 and losing to Ireland in 2011. PNG junior competitions are school based, focusing on the U13, U15 and U17 age groups. In larger cities such as Port Moresby and Lae these age groups have expanded to cope with the increasing interest.
Other viable school competitions are held in Mt Hagen, Goroka, Kimbe, Buka, Rabaul, Kerema and Kavieng.

"It was an incredible journey. The thing that blew me away most was the passion for the game off shore and how it only took one person and their love of the game to be able to start something great."
