Plans for Central Facility to be built on King Island
After many years of trying to secure a dedicated central venue for Victorian Gridiron, the league is very happy to announce a commitment by the Victorian Labour Government to build a new facility by 2018.
Finally we may get to see the big beef up front shake and bake
Our 2016 Operating Rules are now finalised.
Gridiron Victoria will enact one major new rule change for the 2016 men’s season as it endeavours to maintain its extraordinary growth rate of recent years, along with its mantle as the biggest, best and most innovative league in Australia.
American Football has proven extremely popular in Australia for a long time and has seen resurgent growth in the past few years with games on free to air and Australian’s playing in the NFL and NCAA College ranks.
Moves to outlaw this technique in Victoria
Whilst the loyal fans love gridiron unabashedly, it is not uncommon to hear obtuse criticism questioning the helmet and pads, the stop start nature of the game and ultimately the complicated gameplay itself.
Gridiron Victoria is committed to honouring our Australian heritage and is looking to trial a new rule for the 2016 season.
