The game was first started in country Victoria in 1981, now has a national standardised set of modified rules designed to reduce the risks of injury for participating players. Players can enjoy the game and camaraderie they have loved and still get to work on Monday.

The season culminates with the National Carnival usually held in the week after the AFL Grand Final and rotated among some of Australias most popular resort destinations, where over 800 players and their families enjoy a week of footy and a leisurely holiday.The AFL Masters National Carnival is conducted over eight days and is the major national event for players. First held in Melbourne in 1983, the Carnival has since been rotated annually around Australian major city locations and has steadily grown to become the largest Australian Rules Football Championship.
