Australian football first came to Timor-Leste in 2007 when several friends who liked to kick the ball around jokingly put together the East Dili Eels. Later that year, two Timorese played in the country's first AFL match between the Australian army and UN police. Now, six teams play in Dili with mostly Timorese players, including Romaldo Barreto, one of the original two players from the first match in 2007. East Timor's national team, the Crocs, were formed in 2008. They play in Bali twice a year, have toured Darwin and debuted at the International Cup in 2011.

"Watching Brett bring AFL to people who are living in very poor conditions around the world I see the change that can come through sport, through this opportunity. Brett is a really giving and great person and its shining even more that we are abroad - with people he's never met, he's giving them an opportunity to change their lives."
