Veterans Football

For the experienced players...

Veterans football provides an opportunity to stay involved in the game beyond your 20’s. Age minimums can vary league-to-league but in general most competitions start at 35+ years. Games are played both on weekends and during the week.

Is Veterans Football for me?

Veterans football provides an opportunity for those who are either looking to transition from traditional teams into a slower paced game or for previous players who want to prove that they ‘still have it’. It is an opportunity to play against others of a similar age, fitness and ability. Leagues are played over a variety of formats and can vary in regularity in order to suit people’s busy lifestyles.
