The 2017 NAB AFL Under-18 Championships commence this Saturday 10 June, in Perth!
Western Australia will play South Australia at Domain Stadium at 12.30pm. The Championships will be played at seven venues throughout the country over the next four weeks.
AFL National and International Talent Manager Kevin Sheehan said: “The best Under-18 talent will be on display in the coming weeks. Already this season, 28 players who featured in the 2016 Championships have debuted for AFL clubs and I look forward to watching the future stars of the game players showcasing their skills for both the club recruiters and all football fans.”
Five teams will compete: Allies (players from Northern Territory, NSW/ACT, Queensland and Tasmania), South Australia, Vic Metro, Vic Country and Western Australia. The Championships will be played over five rounds with each team playing each other once. Each team will have a bye.
