The next generation of upcoming stars, the NAB AFL Women’s Under 18’s Championship will smash into Blacktown International Sportspark Sydney from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 May 2017.

Australia’s best junior female footballers will be aiming to impress coaches and recruiters for a chance to play in the AFL Women’s competition that is set to expand to 8 teams in 2018.

Mayor of Blacktown City, Councillor Stephen Bali is thrilled with the high calibre of women’s events held at the Sportspark this year.

"It was fantastic to have the AFL Women’s GWS Giants play all of their NSW games in Blacktown, and I cannot wait to cheer on the next level of upcoming talent over the weekend as part of the Under 18 competition.

"The 2017 NAB Women’s AFL competition marks a new and exciting era in Aussie Rules Football," he said.

"We are so proud that we can host such great events right here in Blacktown. I encourage everyone to head to the games and show their support."
