The third Australian Football International Cup was held in Melbourne and Warrnambool in 2008, to coincide with the 150th anniversary of what is widely recognised as the first game of Australian Football (though the roots of this and all codes of football go back much further). A record 16 teams attended, with Papua New Guinea defeating New Zealand at the MCG in the Grand Final.

Match reports from every game and various other stories appear below (in reverse chronological order), as well as the tables at the end of the Pool rounds.
