Flashback Friday

Gridiron in the ACT began in 1990 with the formation of the Canberra Sabretooths Gridiron Club. In 1993 the Senior ACT Gridiron League (ACTGL) was formed with 5 teams. The original teams were Belconnen Thunderbolts, Queanbeyan Wolverines, Tidbinbilla Space Cadets, Tuggeranong Tornadoes, and the University of Canberra Firebirds.


Check out this highlight clip from the inaugural season between the Space Cadets(Purple) and the Firebirds(Yellow). The Space Cadets went on to be the first ACTG Champions, taking out Capital Bowl I 12-6 in overtime against the Thunderbolts
