    The International Federation of American Football was formed in 1998 by founding nations Australia, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Sweden and Spain. By 2008 IFAF membership had increased to a total of 52 countries governed by five continental federations.

    American Football has been played internationally since the late 1800s in countries such as Canada and the United States and can trace its roots in Japan back to the 1930s. The game gained popularity in Europe in the 1970s and gathered pace in the 1980s when sports enthusiasts were gripped by a surge in interest in both watching football on television and participating on the gridiron.

    A record number of 35 countries were represented at the 12th annual International Federation of American Football (IFAF) Congress held in Canton, Ohio, in conjunction with the inaugural IFAF Junior World Championship.

    While the United States, Canada and Japan were winning the tournament gold, silver and bronze medals respectively, IFAF membership continued to expand around the world. Seven countries - Bulgaria, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Venezuela - were granted full membership of IFAF.

    "We are delighted to welcome these new and emerging federations of American football from Pan-American and Europe into the IFAF family," said IFAF President TOMMY WIKING. "The sport continues push its border internationally and by becoming IFAF members, these countries can benefit from a wealth of resources available through IFAF and also by communicating with fellow federations.

    "Last year in Spain, 28 nations attended the IFAF Congress and this year's attendance illustrates how we are not only expanding but are also joining forces effectively to develop the sport."

    Team USA edges World Team, 21-14, in Austin

    February 4, 2011
    Two touchdowns by Joe Bergeron leads Americans to victory

    A tough struggle on an unseasonably cold night greeted the U.S. Under-19 National team Feb. 2 in Austin, Texas.

    The outcome was the same as Team USA improved to 5-0 in international play, but this one went right down to the wire. The Americans won, 21-14, in the second annual Team USA vs. The World at Westlake High School’s Chaparral Stadium.

    Mexico fights down Germany
    [​IMG]
    Mexico mounted a fourth quarter comeback to beat Germany 22-15 in the day’s second game of the IFAF World Championship.

    Trailing 15-12 with 11:05 remaining having led at halftime, Mexico tied a thrilling game with a field goal and then produced a rushing touchdown from Jose Reyes just before the two-minute warning. Linebacker David Aceves sealed victory in the Tivoli Stadium in Innsbruck with an interception with less than a minute remaining.

    Mexico held a slim three-point advantage with a 10-7 halftime lead after defenses impressed and penalties took their toll on Mexico early in the contest.

    “We knew the Germans were the European Champions, so we expected them to be a tough rival and Germany was very tough today,” said Mexico assistant coach Manuel Neri Fernández. “Every time we would have a big play, Germany fought back and challenged us again. It was a great game.”
