The Sydney Uni Lions will meet the Northern Sydney Rebels at home on Sydney Uni Football Ground for the opening clash of the Gridiron NSW season in the 2016 Gridiron NSW Kickoff Game.

The game will be played on Thursday night, 25 August 2016, with the kickoff at 7pm after pre-game entertainment to be provided by the Hawaii Warriors marching band.

The 2016 GNSW Kickoff Game will be played in the lead-up to the major college football match to be played between the Cal Bears and the Hawaii Warriors at ANZ Stadium the following Saturday, with Sydney University hosting a reception for members of the visiting teams in the new TAG Family Foundation grandstand facilities at Sydney University Football Ground.

The 2016 GNSW Kickoff Game is a great opportunity for the club to showcase its program and promote the sport. They are looking for our old boys, family and friends to come out in force for the game in support of the club.
