The Tiwi Bombers joined the NTFL Premier League in 2006, the first all-indigenous team to play in a major competition.
Locals say that football is a religion on the Tiwi Islands and with 900 participants from a population of 2600, the Tiwi Islands has the highest participation rate in Australia with 35%.
