It’s been 50 years in the making…

The Cardiff Australian Football Club will commemorate its 50th anniversary with a special celebration at the Duke of Wellington Hotel on the 29th July, 2017.

Our club has come a long way since those formative steps following its establishment in 1967 to when the Hawks took flight in our first competition game in 1968 though to our golden anniversary in 2017.

The anniversary event on 29th July will be the only official celebration of the Cardiff Australian Football Club half century.

It’s history. Hawks history. Our history. Your history.

During our anniversary event we’ll celebrate the eight first grade premierships, seven reserve grade premierships and thirteen under 18 premierships.

We’ll reflect on our past and we will look to our future. We’ll name a “CAFC Team of the Decade” and a “CAFC Team of the Half Century”. We’ll catch-up with some of our founders, honour our life members and we’ll hear from our current leaders in what is shaping as an exciting season for our club.

The Cardiff Hawks has been many things to many people over the last fifty years.

For some of us it’s a place that we were introduced to by family ties, a place that we grew up around, learned to play footy and shaped our lives, for others it’s a sporting club that we chose to join to play Australian Football, for others it’s a place we chose to support or we chose to sponsor. Whatever the attachment at our core is our people. Hawks people.

People who have served and supported the club both on and off the field for the last half a century. People for whom the Cardiff Australian Football Club has become “part of the heart”.

No matter what your involvement with the club has been over the past fifty years we encourage you come along to the anniversary event, your anniversary event.

You’ll catch up with some old team mates and friends, make some new ones, relive some past glories, commiserate some lesser moments and rejoice in the rich maroon and gold tapestry that is Cardiff Australian Football Club.
