The International Australian Football Council (IAFC) was formed in 1995 at the conclusion of the inaugural International Australian Football Championship, which was held as part of the Arafura Games in Darwin, Australia.
The IAFC was formed to bring together the people, organisations, clubs and leagues who play or are involved with Australian Football internationally. Its role is to develop and promote the sport internationally.
The purposes and principles of the Council include:
- promoting and developing the sport of Australian Football internationally;
- managing and coordinating international matches and tournaments, and
- establishing and promoting an official World Cup of Australian Football.
