NAB League launches a new era

A new era in under 18 football will begin in 2019 with the introduction of the NAB League.

NAB, a long-time partner of the NAB AFL Rising Star Program in Australia, will further support the future stars of the game, extending its partnership with the AFL to the next exciting phase of the expanded under 18 competition, that now includes teams from Victoria, Tasmania, Northern Territory, NSW/ACT and Queensland.

TLA’s Consultancy team was proud to be involved in the launch, which included a key coordinated launch across all teams, the league and stakeholders.

In addition, TLA Teamwear delivered over 11,500 units across 12 of the NAB League clubs.


With a focus to provide further support in education, wellbeing, high performance and coaching, the NAB League will help increase opportunities for talented footballers to reach their potential both on and off the field.

It will also help better prepare the athletes that don’t get drafted, returning to local clubs and schools as peer leaders who set examples.

In a significant development for the national sport, the Tasmanian Devils will be a fully-fledged NAB League team in 2019, while an Academy Series featuring five northern state squads will take part in the lead up to the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships.

In addition, TLA helped develop and launch the new NAB League App. The perfect companion to follow both the Boy’s and Girl’s competitions, the app ensures greater access to a wide audience, with footy fans able to discover Champion Data stats, follow live scores, view teams and read the latest news on the future stars of the game.
