Welcome to the official blog of IFAF, the International Federation of American Football. It is our mission to grow the game of football worldwide, and the formation of this blog coincides with a major step forward towards that aim: Launching football on the continent of Africa.
Over the next two weeks, members from IFAF & USA Football, including IFAF President Tommy Wiking, will journey to Nigeria in an effort to introduce the sport through a number of camps, clinics, and meetings with dignitaries. This blog will be the best source for information on this historic event, including high-resolution pictures and documentary-style videos.
The International Federation of American Football was formed in 1998 by founding nations Australia, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Sweden and Spain. By 2008 IFAF membership had increased to a total of 59 countries governed by four continental federations. For more information, visit the official website here.
