Australian football for domestic sports fans seems to be something incomprehensible and unusual. I am sure that many of you do not even suspect how to play this sport, but according to statistics, Australian football matches are the most visited in the world among all disciplines.
40,000 people come to each match, and in this regard, the Australian version of the game loses only to American and European football.
Of course, this discipline is the national sport of the whole of Australia, and nowhere outside the continent has this discipline gained much popularity. However, the Australian football season lasts about 9 months, and matches are held regularly, which tells us about a good opportunity to establish productive betting.
Anyway, to begin with, I propose to clarify the dynamics of the game itself. The matches take place on a large oval field, measuring 185 m in length and 155 m in width.
There are 18 players from each team on the field, and the goal of the game is to score a goal in the goal. At the same time, the gates themselves have a double shape - wide and narrow. If a football player scores a goal in a big goal, he earns 1 point for his team, and 6 points are awarded for a goal in a narrow one.
Australian football is a mixture of Gaelic and American football with elements of rugby. Therefore, it is allowed to touch the ball with your hands here, and the referees almost do not interfere in the game, which is why this sport is called one of the most contact and violent in the world. Sometimes, the referees do not stop the game even in case of injury to any athlete.
Also, Australian football is called the most dynamic sport. On average, for a match that lasts 80 minutes (4 halves of 20 minutes each), the players run 20-22 km. For example, in traditional football, players on average run 9 km in 90 minutes of the game.
