NSWALC continues to support Knockout

25 September, 2015

WAC_BannerThe NSW Aboriginal Land Council has approved a grant of up to $75,000 to the Barwon Aboriginal Corporation to support next month’s 2015 NSW Aboriginal Rugby League Knockout, which will be held in Dubbo.

The funding of $1000 per team helps discount registration fees for the first 75 male or female teams to register for the event.

NSWALC encourages teams to register with the Barwon Aboriginal Corporation as soon as possible so they can access funding from the grant.

The grant has been made available under the NSWALC discretionary grants Community Benefits Scheme.


The 45th Knockout will be hosted by last year’s winners Walgett Aboriginal Connection with competitions for Under 12s, Under 15s, Under 17s Women and Men being held between 2 and 5 October, 2015 at Caltex Park, Dubbo.

NSWALC is proud to support the Knockout and we look forward to catching the on-field action and catching up with mob over the long weekend.

Thousands of people attend the Knockout every year at the event and also through broadcasters NITV.

We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
