A new year brings a new look to the Chicago Australian Football Association. After some off-season discussions, the players have voted to align the club with the Sydney Swans. The representative team will now be known as the Chicago Swans and will don the red and white for all MAAFL and USAFL matches.
The 2012 season kicks off with pre-season training on the 6th March (Tuesday evening). Four indoor sessions before heading outside and preparing for a few early season clashes. An road-trip to Kentucky for a tournament to kick off the season, then the blockbuster game against the New York Magpies at home in Chicago.
Time to dust off those runners, shake off those cobwebs and hit the treadmill to get back into shape for a historic season.
