The first incarnation of the club came in 2008 when the Edmonton Emus were formed and coached by Tristan Waldock. The following year, the Edmonton Wombats Men’s team took to the field coached by Hamish Martin, before he returned to Australia and Brad Havin took over in 2010. Since, the club has established itself as an outstanding organisation for both on and off field activities.
With the help of current President Joel O’Brien the EAFC has developed a junior program which endeavours to produce Wombats and Emus of the future. From its ranks, the club has provided many representatives for the Canadian National Teams. This includes former Emus coach, Jason Arnold, who led the Canadian Northern Lights to victory in the 2014 International Cup played in Melbourne, Australia.
Presently the club still posseses senior Women’s and Men’s teams, as well as a junior development program. Our fixture includes local games during June, July, September and October, the EAFC also participate in weekend tournaments in Kelowna, Calgary and Newfoundland. National Representatives may also be called on to play in the Parallel Cup against the United States which takes place annually, in a revolving fixture between Canada and the U.S.A.
