The Ipswich Australian Football Club is an Australian rules football club located in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. The club emblem is the Eagle and the club plays in the third Division of the SEQAFL Div 3.[1] The Ipswich Eagles Football Club is not affiliated with the Ipswich Cats Football Club.

History[edit]

Formed in 2001 as a result of Ipswich Cats Senior Club and RAAF Eagles merging. By 2000 the Ipswich senior club had been in recess and with changes in Australia's Defence Forces priorities, causing pressure on the RAAF Eagles. Seeking to remain active in the community, the RAAF Eagles sought a merger with the remnants of the Ipswich Cats Senior Club to create the Ipswich Eagles AFC.[2]

Later on internal club politics lead the remnants to break away and reform the Ipswich Cats.
