QUEENSLAND ALL NATIONS

The Queensland All Nations Tournament allows participants to represent their heritage and their nation at a fun, social and non-affiliated touch football tournament that celebrates our many and diverse cultures that make up Australia.

South Queensland & Border Districts Touch Association in conjunction with Queensland Touch Football delivers an event that allows participants to experience multiple cultures through food, dance and connection.

Cultural identity is a focal point of the event with all teams representing their community under their traditional nation, with uniforms adorned with symbols of their nation, supported by a cultural performance on the Saturday afternoon. This provides an opportunity for members of the community to come together, play some touch football and learn about their local culture and foster relationships and understanding between other cultures.

Date: Saturday 4 – Sunday 5 December, 2021
Location: Coomera Sports Park, 53 Beattie Road, Coomera QLD 4209
