About the League
Established in 2008, AFL Quebec is the governing body of Australian Rules Football in Quebec. Based in Montreal, it is comprised of both a contact and a non-contact league. AFL Quebec prides itself on being one of the fastest growing and best-run leagues in Canada and North America.
AFL Quebec’s contact league consists of five clubs: NDG Giants, Montreal Demons, Montreal City Blues, Old Montreal Dockers and the Plateau Eagles.
Like most leagues outside of Australia, AFL Quebec is a nine-a-side league. This is for numerous reasons such as promoting local player development and field availability. AFL Quebec plays the vast majority of its regular and final series games at Vanier College.
The AFL Quebec regular season generally runs from May until September. This is followed by a series of finals games to run until around early October.
AFL Quebec has both men’s and women’s representative eighteen-a-side teams – the Quebec Saints. They compete against other representative teams across Canada and the United States. These games occur throughout the season in one-off games or, more commonly, at an invitational tournament. Such a tournament is the annual AFL Quebec Women’s Tournament. The Saints also participate in both the AFL Canada and USAFL National tournaments.
AFL Quebec’s mission is to provide all individuals the opportunity to learn and play Australian Football in a positive and welcoming environment.
Our league is committed to providing a safe, inclusive and respectful environment for all members. AFL Quebec is a proud LGBTQIA+ ally and member of Équipe Montreal and we embrace diversity in our community. Bigotry and bullying of any kind will not be tolerated at practices, games, or other league events.
