The AFF is delighted to announce that the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) has allocated $16,000 in direct athlete income support funding (dAIS) to the Australian Men's Foil program, to be paid in instalments over the next six months. This support will assist our fencers to fund their training and competition expenses. 

The allocation of dAIS funding to our fencers recognises their potential to contribute to Australia's Winning Edge performance targets. It is significant because it is the first time Australian fencing has received high performance funding from the ASC in a number of years. The AFF is engaged in ongoing discussions with the ASC about other ways in which they may be able to support our High Performance Program.
