Masters Australian football

Masters Australian football

Masters Australian Football (also known as Superules or sometimes Super Rules) is a sport based on the game of Australian rules football for players aged 35 years and over. The sport first commenced officially on 21 September 1981, after being founded by John Hammer in 1980 in Nhill, Victoria.

Modifications to the rules reduce the physical impact of the game for older players. It is played by over 119 teams throughout Australia and around the world.

The variation to the game is also dubbed "Superfools" by some followers and players.
