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%. 

The pilgrimage to the Tiwi Islands for a game of footy is on many a bucket list and this 17/18 NTFL season there's four opportunities to catch a game. 

SeaLink NT runs extra ferry services for these games. Follow us on Facebook for updates closer to the games
