Following a meeting of Gridiron Victoria owners on the Gold Coast this week, history has been made for one of the clubs.
For the first time in GV history, one of the franchises will move to a new location.
(April Fools Joke)
Following some confusion on social media and amongst club reps, Gridiron Victoria wanted to clarify two new rule changes for 2017.
Despite rumours of adopting the 3-down rule from the Canadian Football League (CFL), we can confirm that is 100% not happening.
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.
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.
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.
