Hampton Rovers Football Club

Welcome to the International Footy section of the Hampton Rovers AFC Website. The Rovers have supported the promotion of Australian Football overseas for a number of years now. During the inaugural Australian Football International Cup in 2002, the Rovers hosted both the USA and PNG sides on an evening at Boss James Reserve which gave them the opportunity to watch training and experience how a local footy club operates in Australia. This was again done during the 2005 tournament with the USA and South African teams visiting the club. The Rovers have hosted two players from the USA who played games with the club in the Reserves, while a couple of Rovers players have also played overseas. The club previously had a sister club arrangement with the USA club - Lehigh Valley Crocodiles. The Rovers have also donated sets of jumpers overseas, most recently to South Africa. In August 2010, the Rovers formed a relationship with the Toronto-based Central Blues Australian Football Club. Four Hampton Rovers players have played for the club and the Rovers expect to host several players in 2011.

Currently playing for the Rovers (from Canada): Mike Karas, Victor Cinco, Arnold Quirong
