The Stumptown Throwdown tournament is back again this year and will feature some high caliber Australian football. This year the Steelheads and last year’s champion the Orange County Bombers will be joined by the Golden Gate Roos and the Seattle Grizzlies. It’ll be a battle to establish who’s the best team on the West Coast.

Come on out to cheer on your hometown Steelheads and Sockeyes. Don’t know much about footy? No problem, there will be plenty of people who’d be more than willing to explain the ins and outs of the game. If you want to put your support on display, there will be team merchandise available. Bring your appetite and partake in the BBQ lunch on offer, too.

It will be a big day of footy and here’s what you need to know:


The tournament will be taking place at the Steelhead’s home ground – George Smith Elementary School in SW Portland, located at SW 52nd & Marigold.
