The NRL Touch Premiership is an elite touch football tournament in which men’s and women’s teams representing eight NRL clubs play curtain-raisers to NRL matches at stadiums around Australia.

The second year of this elite touch football tournament has expanded significantly, with more NRL clubs involved, and about four times as many gamedays at more stadiums all across the country.

A 30-minute Women’s game and 30-minute Men’s game are played as curtain-raisers to the NRL.
