NTFL Men's Grand Final Preview


After recording the greatest winning margin in an NTFL Men’s Premier League Preliminary Final, Southern Districts will march into Saturday’s Grand Final, in the hopes of going back-to-back.

But standing in their way is minor premiers Nightcliff, who are intent of breaking a 54-year premiership drought.

The pinnacle of the 2018/19 TIO NTFL season between Nightcliff and Southern Districts is going to be a big one and has been set for 7:15pm at TIO Stadium on Saturday 16 March 2019.

The two teams have never met before in a Men’s Premier League Grand Final, so when it comes to the history books, new pages have already been written.

General admission tickets are available for pre-purchase: https://www.ntix.com.au/#!/events/-L_koe3FIAwpQQ1ry6rU/ but will also be available on the day.
