About the Story

There are a bazillion reasons to love footy! These are just my biggest ones…

There's the big tackles and amazing marks.  There's wearing the scarf and singing the song.  But whether your team wins or loses, from the opening bounce to the final siren, the very best thing about footy is that we do it together. 

Michael Wagner and Tom Jellett's Why I Love Footy is a perfect book for families and footy fans of all colours. Our storyteller, Rusty Berther, barracks for The Demons. Who do you barrack for?
