Metro Footy (or Metro Rules Footy) - a modified version of Australian rules football rules played on gridiron football, rugby or soccer fields, predominantly in the United States of America. The reasons for the development of Metro Footy was partly due to there being few grounds large enough for traditional Australian Rules matches, but also to allow competitive footy to be played with small playing numbers, allowing for better recruitment possibilities.

Teams typically consist of 9-a-side on a 110 x 50 meter field. The teams that play feed into larger 18-a-side Australian Rules representative teams that participate in leagues such as the MAAFL or tournaments such as the USAFL National Championships and also provide the opportunity to introduce new American players to the game of Aussie Rules.

Several clubs from the United States Australian Football League participate in Metro Footy.
