Football is a body contact sport which carries a risk of personal injury or death. National Gridiron League Administrators take steps to reduce the risk of serious injury and death, but it is not possible to eliminate risk in a sport involving forceful body contact such as Football. Players voluntarily assume the risks associated with participating in football and acknowledge this warning of the injury or death risks involved;
Whilst some limited statutory insurance cover is available for participants who suffer particular injuries, the Civil Liability Act in each State (the Acts) limit the liability of National Gridiron League Pty Limited Administrators (including their volunteers, members, employees and officials) from civil litigation arising out of injuries suffered whilst playing, or training for, Football;
The League is required to warn Players and other persons involved in the game of football of the risks of injury involved in playing football, which the League hereby does.
