Mackay gridiron was established in 2017 by a group of American football enthusiasts in order to compete in the NQ competition overseen by Gridiron Queensland.
Athletes from all ages and levels of sporting experience came together to form the first ever Mackay Mavericks gridiron team to compete against the Townsville Cyclones and the Cairns Falcons. This team was led by American Expat James Cobb whose knowledge of the game has imbued the team with the much needed experience in a sport never before played in Mackay.
It is the goal of this club to compete and win in the North Queensland competition as well as grow the sport in the Mackay community amongst all age groups and genders.
