Indy Giants Form Partnership with GWS

The Indy Giants are proud to announce a partnership with the AFL's GWS Giants. The Indy Giants, co-founded by Dr. Sam Pope and Matt Jagger, are planting the seed as the newest USAFL club and are preparing for their inaugural season. Says Dr. Pope, “I am amazed by the support of the football community, both here in the US and Australia. Being centrally located in the midwest, Indianapolis is surrounded by many USAFL clubs within a few hours drive. It’s a no-brainer and we hope to host many tournaments in the years-to-come.”

A Day at the Footy Like Never Before!

As an expat there is nothing quite like a day at the footy. A chance to watch our great game, get your teeth into a pie and just soak up the embodiment of Australiana. Ah, it is good to be home – even if just for a short while. That is what I was looking forward to when I planned a trip to the AAMI Stadium in Adelaide to see Port host the Greater Western Sydney (GWS) Giants. Well, this day ended up being like none other at the footy.
