Denmark national Australian rules football team

Union Danish Australian Football League
Nickname(s) The Vikings
First international
Denmark 93 – 25 Great Britain

The Vikings are Denmark's national Australian rules football team. The team formed in 1992 to play the North London Lions from the British Australian Rules Football League in Denmark.

The Vikings represent the best Danish born players selected from the clubs of the Danish Australian Football League.

The Vikings wear the national colours of red and white, with the top half of Australian rules football in the shape of a horned "Viking" helmet.

Proper internationals began in 1994 when Denmark played an international in England.

In 1995, the DAFL took a decision to exclude Australians from its national team.

Since then, the Vikings have participated in the inaugural 2002 Australian Football International Cup held in Melbourne (finishing 4th).

The national team was one of two teams (the other being Nauru) that withdrew from the 2005 tournament due to an inability of the Danish league to finance the trip.
