Nationals Update

The CAFL and USAFL would like to formally announce that there has been a change of venue for the 2000 National Tournament. It will still be held in Los Angeles on the 14th & 15th October but is no longer at Van Nuys.

Because we were forced to change the venue we have also had to change hotels. Please do not make any more bookings with Airtel and contact me as soon as possible to obtain information on how to cancel your existing reservation if you have one.

Following are the new Venue and Hotel details:

Venue Little Lake Park, Santa Fe Springs LA California.
Address Corner of Pioneer Imperial Hwy & Lakeland Street
Directions To be advised
New Hotel Norwalk Marriott Hotel.
Hotel Address   13111 Sycamore Drive, Norwalk CA.
Phone 1 800 442 4556.You must advise you are with the Australian Football League
Price $75.00 + Tax (10%)
Details You can have up to four people per room. If sharing rooms with another person/s you just advise the hotel of each persons name.
Please book ASAP to ensure a reservation.

If you have made flight reservations to fly into an airport other than LAX, please contact me to obtain information on how to get from the airport to the new hotel in Santa Fe Springs. If you have made flight reservations to fly into LAX, please be aware we will have a shuttle service direct from LAX to the Marriott. Further details will be advised on the shuttle service.

For more details you can visit the National Tournament link on or go direct to;

A weekend schedule with game and function details will be emailed to you as soon as possible.

Please remember that all your players need to be registered on If they have not done so by the tournament, they will not be allowed to play until they have done so.

Please also remember that you need to supply identification for every player. Identification will be checked upon sign-in at the gate on Saturday morning and those who have not provided ID will not be allowed to play until they supply proper ID. These rules will be enforced and there will be no exceptions.

Due to the size of the fields we will only be able to play 14 a side.
As at the 18th September we have 17 teams registered so there will be 2 divisions.
The division information and game schedule will be emailed as soon as possible.

The following teams have registered. Details are current as at 18th September 2000. Some teams did not send all required information. Mike Brothers of the CAFL will email you again with what he needs to complete your teams' registration.

On behalf of the CAFL and the USAFL I would like to apologize for any inconvenience the change of venue may have caused. Please understand that it was due to circumstances beyond our control and we have done our very best to provide new grounds and a new host hotel.

Many thanks for your patience and we hope to see you all in LA in 24 days!!
