Gridiron Queensland have been busy uploading video footage of games to their youtube channel dating all the way back to 1985.

They have put out a call on their Facebook page for old VHS footage from older games to allow them to take steps to get them digitized and uploaded.

The best video I have seen so far on the channel is the second ever game of gridiron played in the first organised competition in Queensland, between the Centurions and the¬†Bulldogs from 1985. The earlier game of the day and the first ever game in Queensland was between the Steelers and the Warriors. You will notice something about this game pretty quickly….

On the channel you will find over 120 videos of games from:

  • 1985
  • 1986
  • 1987
  • 1988
  • 1989
  • 1990
  • 1992
  • 1993
  • 1994
  • 1995
  • 1996
  • 2013
  • 2015 Men’s Games
  • 2014 Women’s Games
  • 2014 Colts Games
  • QLD Games
  • Ghosts

This is the kind of project that brings people back to the sport, with former players and coaches being able to get online and watch themselves in their former glory. And anything that brings people back to the sport can only be a good thing.

If you have any footage from Gridiron Queensland be sure to get in contact with them and make the video available for everyone to enjoy.
