Summary The overwhelming weight of academic historical writing on Association football in Australia since the 1970s has focused on the game through the prism of ethnicity. The ills of the game and its failure to become the dominant code of football, as it is in many countries, are regularly attributed to the many ways in which the game was or could be portrayed as a foreign import that brought non-Australian concerns onto the sporting field where they had no place. Here it is argued that structural issues have a much greater role to play in understanding the evolution of the game since the 1950s. Global changes in sport and Association football in particular have also impinged significantly on the game in Australia. Now football is a major part of the Australian sporting landscape, though its position vis-a`-vis rival codes remains contested.
