Australian football has been played in Sweden since 1993, after the Helsingborg Saints were formed to play in the Danish Australian Football League.
The national team, The Elks debuted in 1997 against the Danish Vikings and have since gone on to play in the EU Cup (defeating Germany in the 2007 Grand Final), the Tri-Nations Cup and two International Cups.
The game is currently played in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Karlstad, Falun, Norrtälje, Uppsala and Scania.
A national governing body was formed in 2007 under the name Svenska Australiensiska Fotbollsförbundet or AFL Sweden.

Eddie McGuire

"Well the greatest thing about AFL football is it is unique. It is an indigenous brand to Australia. In so many ways it actually captures the egalitarian nature that we hold true to our hearts, and that is anyone of any size can play."
