Welcome to season 2017!
After a well-earned off-season break on the back of our second premiership in as many years, the Tokyo Goannas are gearing up for the start of the season.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you all to our season launch which will be held this Saturday, April 8th from 1pm at our sponsor bar, Hobgoblin Roppongi – the home of Aussie Rules in Tokyo. It promises to be a great day with a BBQ, discounted beers, a raffle, and of course, footy on the big screens.
Entry is free with all raffle proceedings going toward sending the Japan Goannas to the Shanghai Cup this May.
Come along with your friends and family (children are of course welcome) – we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
Here are some other key dates for early in the season:
April 16th – JAFL Round 1: Tokyo Goannas v Tokyo Bay Suns
April 22nd – Anzac Day Cup in Osaka – hosted by the Osaka Dingoes
May 13th – Shanghai Cup in Shanghai, China – This tournament will be played the day before the AFL match between the Port Adelaide Power and Gold Coast Suns
May 21st – JAFL Round 2: Tokyo Goannas v Shonan Poseidons
Get around the Goannas in 2017!
