Great Britain Bulldogs

The Great Britain national Australian rules football team is known as the Great Britain Bulldogs. The team is made up of the best British born players selected from the clubs of AFL Britain affiliated competitions in England, Wales and Scotland. One of the ultimate goals of any sportsperson is to represent their country. In Australian Rules Football, we give you the opportunity to do just that. The GB Bulldogs have competed in full international fixtures around the world since the early 90’s. As part of the Atlantic Alliance, regular fixtures against the US, Canada, Denmark and Ireland provided some of the earliest footy international fixtures anywhere in the world. Since 2002, the squad has represented GB at the AFL organised International Cup in Australia and more recently, a full sided European Championship has provided a regular competition closer to home.

If you or a player at your club want to be considered for the GB Bulldogs squad, please email bulldogs@aflgb.com for more information. The Bulldogs are currently coach by Dean Thomas and the team is managed by Jason Hill.
