Our History

Established in 2008, the EAFC has celebrated nearly a decade of footy in Edmonton! Our fixture includes local games during June, July, September and October, along with weekend tournaments in Kelowna and Calgary. National Representatives may also be called on to play in the Parallel Cup, the International Cup, or any number of National / International tournaments throughout the year.

If you wish to be part of this great social and athletic club, please feel free to contact us with any enquiries. We love to educate and train people in our game and have players of all experience levels training and playing with us at all times!
