National Football League of Australia retro footy tees
Before the AFL there was the National Football League of Australia (originally known as the Australian National Football Council), Aussie rules’ national governing body that was formed in 1906. The NFL was responsible for the game’s development across all states and territories. In the mid 70s it ran a national ‘night series’ competition, with teams representing the VFL, VFA, WAFL, SANFL, Tasmania, Queensland, NSW and the ACT. This tournament was eventually squeezed out by the VFL which launched the rival Australian Football Championships. As the VFL grew into the AFL responsibility for the national game became increasingly Melbourne-centric. In 1995 the NFL (then known as the National Australian Football Council) ceased to be. This retro footy tee remembers the pioneering role of the NFL, because a national game should be truly national.
