The MAAFL is a division of the United States Australian Football League and is an Australian rules football competition based in the United States.

The league formed 1996 when clubs from Cincinnati and Louisville played the first ever game of Aussie Rules in North America.

Unlike many Metro Footy leagues in the US, the MAAFL is a traditional 18-a-side Australian rules competition and is the oldest and arguably the best supported league in the country and currently holds the record for attendance.

Current Clubs[edit]

As of 2007, the league split its teams into two divisions to reduce travel costs.
