2011 Nationals Set for Austin!

The USAFL Executive Board and National Championships Committee are excited to formally announce that the 2011 Nationals will take place in Austin, Texas over the weekend of October 8 - 9th.

“It is an honor for Austin to be chosen for the USAFL National Tournament, and we are excited to host this one-of-a-kind event,” says Matthew Payne, executive director of the Austin Sports Commission.  “We have enjoyed working with USAFL officials through the bid process and are looking forward to showcasing our wonderful city to the many athletes coming from all over the country.  Austin is known for doing things a little unconventionally, so we know this city will embrace the great game of Australian Football.”

"I would like to personally thank all the work done and hospitality shown by the Austin Sports Commission, our host hotels and the Austin Crows football club. Following months of negotiations and state applications, we're excited to be able to announce that our National Championships will travel to Texas for the first time," stated Richard Mann, USAFL President and National Championships Director.

The USAFL National Championships is the largest Australian Football tournament in the world, with 4 men's divisions, a women's division, juniors clinics, multiple development programs, seminars and over 1,000 athletes competing in over 60 games in one action packed weekend.
