Event Info


The 2015 Down Under Bowl celebrated its 27th anniversary with an exciting Super Sunday Championship at the Runaway Bay Super Sports Center.

I invite you to join me in this once-in-a-lifetime football experience at the 2016 Down Under Bowl in Australia. We will have a week of preparation and practice down under as we gear up for the 28th Down Under Bowl Championships. One of the highlights of the 2015 Championships was the presence of Jesse Williams, a former Down Under Bowl participant from Australia. He served as an Honorary Captain and did a very impressive coin toss wearing his two National Championship rings from the University of Alabama and his Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl ring.

Our six USA teams played in exciting and competitive Championships earning three gold medals and three silver medals. I hope you will strongly consider this invitation to join the more than 11,700 Down Under Bowl alumni from the USA. The games are played under high school federation rules and are officiated by USA and Australian officials. I would love to have you represent your state and country in playing the great game of football in the land down under.

—Coach Chris Pella, Down Under Bowl Director
