The Elite 8 is played in line with the National Touch League each March and the event is conducted by Touch Football Australia. As the name suggests the Elite 8 is an elite open’s competition for teams selected across the nation by the States and Touch Football Australia. For NSW we have four teams which participate in both the Men’s & Women’s competitions. These include the NSW Country Mavericks, NSW Mets, NSW Rebels and NSW Scorpions. These NSW teams also compete against the Alliance (ACT, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia & Northern Territory), QLD Stingrays, QLD Chiefs & QLD Outlaws.
From a NSW perspective the selection of these teams is done via the NSW Touch Football Selectors as part of the ongoing selection process which revolves around State of Origin.
