Due to the large variety of codes of football played in Australia, conflicts sometimes arise when naming articles. The following is a guideline for use of the word "football" in Australian articles.
Terms for football codes
The four main football codes should be referred to as:
Other less popular codes, which should also be disambiguated using the below rules:
- Australia national football team is a redirect to Australia national soccer team, with a disambiguation header pointing to Australia national football team (disambiguation). This is because the other codes either:
- are token representative sides which do not play in international competition – All-Australian team
- do not refer to themselves or major international competitions as "football" teams – Australia national rugby union team (see category) and Australia national rugby league team (see category)
- are minor codes and do not warrant primary disambiguation as per regular Wikipedia policy – Australia national American football team and Australia international rules football team
