Welcome to Balmain Australian Football Club.

We are a proud club steeped in history since foundation dating back to 1903.  Over the past three years we have reviewed our goals and raised our ambition to return to being a leading Australian football organisation in Sydney catering for all players, our families and supporters.

At the 2020 annual general meeting, we officially merged the seniors with the masters club to form an exceptional platform for growth and development in Sydney's Inner West.

Mens Platinum Division

The 2021 season is underway with a full calendar every Saturday and training Tuesdays and Thursdays through to September.

We are constantly recruiting new tigers, so if you are taking the leap from juniors to seniors, are jaded with your old team, or are new to town and keen to join an historic establishment, contact us above, or head to our TeamApp for further details.


Over 35 and keen to play?  We cater for the full range of enthusiasts from Sunday social kickstarter through to full competition particpation.  Follow our TeamApp and get involved.


We are eager to hear from women who want to play footy.  Send an email and we will build a team.  Training is open for you to join the men and we will aim to hold friendly games in 2021 and our inaugural competition debut by 2023.
