FOLLOWING months of intense preparation, Australia's best touch footballers converge on the C.ex Coffs International Stadium this week for the 2014 TFA X-Blades National Touch League (NTL) and Elite Eight series.

The event will feature 117 teams across 12 divisions with four days of play commencing this Wednesday.

This staging means the titles return to the original base.

Prior to last year, Coffs Harbour previously hosted the event from its inception in 1997 through to 2008.

The venue will also host the 2014 and 2015 NTL events, as well as the 2015 Federation of International Touch World Cup in April-May next year.

Teams from seven states in Australia as well as seven international teams from Japan (four teams) and Papua New Guinea (three teams) will compete in the NTL event.

Approximately 2000 participants will take part.

The northern NSW region will be represented by six Northern Eagles teams, competing in men's T-league, women's T-league, women's 40s, men's 50s and men's 55s.
