National University League

The History

Established in 2018, the National University League was launched as the country's first Australian rules football league.

In its first season, it will feature teams from the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Birmingham, along with a representative side from the Universities of South Wales.

In its inaugural season, Oxford emerged as minor premiers of both the Men's and Women's Division. The very first NUL Grand Finals will take place on March 9th.
