Real Football

With the recent success of the the Australian Soccer team the debate has raged in Melbourne about the future of each game. In the home of Australian Rules, the World Game of Football has hijacked the sporting news. However, although it is hard to see now I am sure the staunch local AFL support will hold strong and given a few weeks after the World Cup has come and gone the AFL will be back into the headlines. In the background through, Soccer will have been given a kick start, and the seed that is planted may take a few years but the world popularity of the game, the high ethnic population in Melbourne, and the high participation rate of soccer at junior level, will all combine to make soccer and real challenger to the AFL.
