Australian Football League Germany 1. Matchday 2018

Die Rheinland Lions stehen nach dem ersten Spieltag der Australian Football League Germany (AFLG) auf dem ersten Platz. Die Kölner setzten sich sowohl gegen die Dresden Wolves als auch gegen die Gastgeber Württemberg Giants durch - die bei ihrem Debüt aber immerhin einen Sieg einfahren konnten.

Australian Football, auch als Australian Rules Football, Aussie Rules oder einfach „Football“ oder „Footy“ bezeichnet, ist eine Footballvariante, die mit einem ellipsoidförmigen Ball auf einem großen, elliptischen Spielfeld mit vier (Tor-)Pfosten an jedem Ende gespielt wird. Das Ziel des Spiels ist es, durch Schüsse zwischen die Pfosten zu punkten.
Quelle: Wikipedia

Der Spielball und die Tackles erinnern an Rugby und American Football, die Laufintensität sowie der Spielfluss an Fußball und das Spielfeld an Cricket. Australian Rules Football vereint viele vertraute Elemente zu einem einzigartigen und spektakulären Teamsport. Aber was wird hier eigentlich gespielt?
Das Spielprinzip ist simpel: Der Ball wird mit Hilfe von Schüssen, Handpässen oder laufend über das Spielfeld getragen, mit dem Ziel, ihn durch das gegnerische Tor zu schießen, welches mit hohen Pfosten gekennzeichnet ist. Das gegnerische Team versucht natürlich, dies zu verhindern, indem es das Pass-Spiel stört oder ballführende SpielerInnen durch Tackles stoppt.
Ursprünglich zur Überbrückung der Winterpause im Cricket eingesetzt, ist Australian Rules Football – Aussie Rules oder auch einfach Footy – mittlerweile der Nationalsport in Down Under. Vor 15 Jahren wurde der Sport nach Deutschland exportiert, wo er in den Großstädten eine enthusiastische und stetig wachsende Fan- und Spielerbasis aufgebaut hat, einschließlich Ligabetrieb und Nationalmannschaft.
Ein Blick auf die Profis lässt die Vielseitigkeit des Sports erahnen: Egal, ob man eher klein oder groß, schmal oder breit gebaut ist, beim Footy kann jeder seine Stärken ausspielen.
Wer Footy spielt, trainiert Ausdauer, Agilität, Sprungkraft, Ballgefühl, Augen-Hand-Koordination und „mit Köpfchen zu spielen“, selbst, wenn einem die GegnerInnen schon am Trikot hängt.
