Australian Football International Cup 2005


Melbourne played host to the 2nd International Cup, with regional Victorian town Wangaratta also featuring for one round of matches. 12 countries were expected with Spain the fresh faces, but funding and player availability saw Denmark and Nauru as late withdrawals, reducing the total to 10. Papua New Guinea again made the final, but went down to New Zealand.

Below are links to key details for the event. WFN reported on every game and the complete archive can still be found below, in reverse chronological order.
