The Glasgow Redbacks is Australian rules football club in Glasgow, Scotland.

History[edit]

The Redbacks formed for the 2006 Scottish Australian Rules Football League season. Its first season saw the club make the finals series in the newly expanded league format (in 2006 there were 5 teams for the first time) and achieve a higher league position than their crosstown and longer established rivals, the Glasgow Sharks. The club is now disbanded.

The club wore black jumpers with a red diagonal stripe across the front, the same as worn by the Essendon Football Club in the elite Australian Football League in Melbourne, Australia. This is said to recognise the Scottish roots of Essendon, which was formed in 1871 by a Scots family who had moved to Melbourne.

The club's home ground is at Victoria Park, Glasgow.
