The 2023 NAB AFLW Premiership Cup Tour has officially kicked off today in Adelaide, as it begins its two-week journey across four states and territories this month as part of the celebrations for the upcoming 2023 NAB AFLW Grand Final.
Recently retired AFLW champion Erin Philips OAM was joined by current Adelaide Crows AFLW players Ebony Marinoff and Najwa Allan as well as a host of local community footballers at Norwood Oval today to welcome the Cup to South Australia.
This year’s Tour will see women’s football’s most prestigious piece of silverware visit a total of nine primary and secondary schools, five community football clubs, three NAB AFL Auskick clinics and five NAB offices across South Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland and Victoria.
Today, the Cup made its way to all-girls school Seymour College in Glen Osmond to visit students and inspire its 50 strong contingent of female Auskick and Superkickers before heading to St Joseph’s Primary School in Hectorville on Tuesday morning. For the past five years St Joseph’s has been a strong supporter of NAB AFL Auskick with nearly 70 students taking part in the program this season.

Following its visit to Adelaide, the Cup will make its way to the Northern Territory, where it will spend four days visiting schools and clubs across Darwin before finishing with a visit to Tiwi Islands on November 18 for the first time. 

In its second year, the Cup Tour aims to celebrate female football excellence from grassroots to the elite and highlight a number of football communities that have experienced participation growth in women and girls’ football.
