Welcome to the new premiership season of the National Australian Football League for 2021.
Last year's competition was a resounding success, with 64 entrant teams battling it out in the largest scale competition this forum has ever seen, leading to the highest quality field of entrants in board history. This season, we want to keep that momentum going so much like last season, there will be no NAFL Reserves league, and every designer will be allowed to enter two teams.
There's just one catch. You cannot enter both teams from last season, meaning if you do enter two new teams, one of the teams must at the very least be a relocation/rebrand. This is to keep things fresh, and encourage all designers to continue to explore new design avenues, which was the purpose of the two teams. This led to eleven out of the final sixteen teams last season being either entirely new identities, or rebrands of existing identities.
Whilst there will likely again be some identity overlap with a large field of entrants, new teams are expected to come up with new identities.
The structure of the competition will likely be the same as last season, however this will depend on final numbers. I would ideally like to have another staggered round robin that sees 3/4 of teams make it into the finals, which can lead to some very exciting matchups early on in the series. The finals series will remain the same as last year, where games will be single leg (home vs away, with higher ranked team in home guernsey) up until no advantage can be given, in which games will become two legged, with aggregate score coming into play if teams are tied. If a tiebreaker is needed, the third guernseys will be used.
So, you want to enter? Submit your team bid(s) below, like this:
Team: Perth Boomers
Colours: Navy & orange
Location: Western Australia
(No, the Boomers won't be making a surprise appearance this season. I will not be entering this year.)
Note that you do not have to submit both bids now, if you need time to decide on your second team, feel free to take it.
Once you have had your bid(s) accepted, here is the design guide for this season:
Please note, we have some fairly significant changes this season from previous seasons, please take note!
