It is set to be the biggest gridiron tournament in Australia’s history.  The event will be live-streamed and will be a ‘festival of gridiron’ bringing together the entire Australian Gridiron community with a number of activities being planned to showcase some exciting new initiatives.

Gridiron Australia Chairman, Darrin Mitchell is excited about this historic event  “This will bring together our best players from across the country and will give them all the unique opportunity to learn from each other and the best coaches we have in the country how to be better footballers and share a common goal. We look forward to seeing all States represented at the National Championships to show the country American Football the Australian Way.” 

This flagship event will also serve as a selection round for the Women’s Australian Outback squad set to compete in Finland 2021 with members of the National Coaching staff in attendance and will also be the introduction of the very first Men’s All-Star team, made up of players from around the country unable to field an independent state team. 

Gridiron Australia Director of Football Operations, Kevin Wilson when asked about the potential of the event had this to say.  “This is the biggest event for our sport in this country and to have the opportunity to bring our members together in one place to celebrate the sport we all love is extremely exciting”
