(Mods / Admin / Content Advisors) - this post does have an element of advertising in it - however it is all in a good cause, and I have no interest, financial or other. I'd appreciate being indulged.


Hello All,

The timing couldn't be worse, but I know there a couple of AFL fans here so I am bringing this to your attention.

There is a limited effort around real footy in India, with a number of teams established in the south. See the link for a report on the AFL India OGM Cup played late last year.

And this link for another article on the origins.

There's a connection through RecLink - and if you are unfamiliar with them:
http://www.reclink.org/

This has all largely been the effort of Lincoln Harris, the man behind India Unbound. He is organising a tour of India 8-18 November inclusive; to incorporate a couple of footy clinics (and cricket matches) in Udaipur and Mumbai, and then helping out at the national tournament in Goa.

The full tour itinerary including prices is available online at:

http://indiaunbound.com.au/Documents...India-Tour.pdf

All proceeds from the tour go to Reclink Australia and AFL India. Full disclosure of tour proceeds/disbursements will be made at the conclusion of the tour.

If this doesn't suit your diary, perhaps you could bring it to the attention of a sports-inclined, India-curious friend.

Thanks.

Thanks for your support Prince - that's hardly the point, however.
