The deeply entrenched and entwined relationship football plays in the Tiwi cultural landscape is well documented. This relationship has and continues to provide a perfect key in supporting important and significant social change.
The Tiwi Bombers Football Club is proud to be representative of the whole Tiwi Community. Our formation was motivated by a desire to positively impact a number of social issues using the popularity of AFL. We are keen to maintain that role.
The Tiwi Bombers Football Club took part in a seven-game trial during the 2006/07 NTFL season and won six of the games by convincing margins. It was the first time an all-Aboriginal side played in a major competition.
From there the Club was granted a full license and in 2011/12 the Men’s Premier League won its first grand final, defeating Nightcliff.
The Tiwi Bombers has a strong showing in both the U18 and U15 girls competitions and have been a grand finalist in both and premiers in the U15 Girls in 2015/16 and 2016/17 and in the U16 Girls in the 2014/15 season.
