Revolution Prepare for 2010

The international presence of Australian Rules Football continues to grow with the announcement of a World XVIII and Oceania team participating in the NAB AFL U/16 Championship in June of this year.


Hawthorn also recently announced that it will sponsor the New Zealand national teams and AFL clubs are starting to utlize the International Rookie option to test international players.


In more specific American Revolution news players continue to travel downunder to gain invaluable experience in the various leagues throughout the country. At the moment there are 7 players working through pre-seasons with clubs in Western Australia, Queensland and Victoria.


Back in the U.S. available Revolution players will be meeting in Austin, Texas, for a 2 day training camp. The camp is scheduled for the weekend of February 27 & 28 and any players interested in attending are welcome.


With the 2011 International Cup only 18 months away this is one of the last opportunities for players to signal their intention to try out for the Revolution squad. The Revolution are scheduled to play Canada in Toronto on the 31st of July and the coaching staff are aiming to take the best available squad.


In Austin players will be put through rigorous testing to determine their capabilities and will also be taken through a comprehensive overview of the game to ensure their knowledge and understanding continues to develop.


If you would like to nominate yourself, or another player, to attend the camp or if you would like to find out more please contact BJ Gambaro at
