Touch Football Australia (TFA) in conjunction with the Sunshine Coast Council, are pleased to announce that Stockland Park will host a number of Touch Football events from 2013 to 2015.

 

The Sunshine Coast has won the right to host multiple events after an extremely competitive tender process which included multiple submissions from across Queensland.  Touch Football events return to the Sunshine Coast, with the region previously having hosted the 2010 X-Blades National Touch League, 2010 and 2011 X-Blades National Youth Championships (NYC).

 

The NYC will return to the Sunshine Coast in September 2013, 2014 and 2015.

 

Tourism, Sport and Major Events Portfolio Councillor Jason O'Pray said Sunshine Coast Council was pleased to be supporting the Championships.

 

"Each event is expected to bring 1,200 participants and supporters to the region and inject an estimated $3M to our local economy," Councillor O'Pray said.

 

Acting General Manager Stockland Park, Simon Ball said Stockland Park is a perfect venue to showcase the cream of touch football talent in this country.

 

"Hosting the event at the Stockland Stadium Sunshine Coast offers a great experience for spectators as well as participants," Mr Ball said.

 

Touch Football Australia Chief Executive Officer, Colm Maguire, is looking forward to the events returning to the Sunshine Coast.

 

"TFA has had a long and successful relationship with the Sunshine Coast and we are excited to return to the fantastic facilities that Stockland Park offer.  We anticipate that the local community will fully embrace our participants as we deliver this strong economic impact to the region and showcase our great game," Mr Maguire said.

 

The NYC will be held in conjunction with an exciting new event -the Champions League in 2013 and 2015.  Clubs from across Australia are invited to compete in the multiple divisions to determine the nation's best club team.

 

The NYC will also be held in conjunction with the prestigious State of Origin event in 2014.  New South Wales and Queensland will battle it out in thirteen divisions for state supremacy.  Divisions from 20s through to 50s will play three games over two days of competition.
