Suns Metro League

About the League

This is Sacramento’s local Australian Football league (both a mens and womxns game each week) with matches hosted throughout the summer. Players are divided onto one of four pods and each week two pods combine to form a team. There are six rounds where all four pods will have the opportunity to play and pair up twice. The finale will be a day of draft, with the two highest ranked pods selecting players from the remaining pool for the final game! Metro players often play at the next level as a Sun for our competitive USAFL travel teams.
