Rajasthan Eagles came into the realm of ARFAI with the successful implementation of a sustainable grassroots Australian Rules Football Program in the state of Rajasthan. Magic Bus with the support of ASC and ARFAI work to engage with communities through Community Youth Leaders (CYLs) to deliver programs in the state of Rajasthan. The CYL’s were provided special training by the ARFAI coaches who in turn trained the kids of Rajasthan about Australian Rules Football.

Well organized and successful implementation of the program led the participation of Rajasthan eagles, a team representing the state of Rajasthan, in the 3rd ARFAI National Championship 2014 held in Navi Mumbai in the junior category which comprised of players aged between 12-16 years. The selection of the players for the team was a direct outcome of the first ever Rajasthan State Championship held at Jaipur. The best 15 players from the State Championship were selected to represent their state in the National Championship.


A special mention should made of Siddharth Singh Chauhan and Sarfaraz Khan, Magic Bus CYL’s for the Jaipur district who were so influenced by this sport that they took personal interest and initiatives to grow the sport in Rajasthan.

Similarly Sudip Chakraborty, Secretary General Of ARFAI and also the Captain of Indian Tigers, and Mona Kalra, Tresurer of ARFAI who, through their personal effort, have been able to start the sport in Udaipur and have done many demonstration and training sessions in schools like Mharana Mewar Public School (MMPS), Delhi Public School (DPS) and Ryan International School in Udaipur.
