The 2022 Footy Festival is a celebration of Australian football in Melbourne, sponsored in part by the Australian Football League. Believe it or not, this year’s festival also includes something for Nintendo fans to get excited about!

Featured at the festival is the “Nintendo Switch Zone”, wherein attendees will have the opportunity to go head to head with some professional AFL players in Nintendo Switch Sports (presumably the soccer minigame). Today, some players got to go up against Lachie Neale, Tom Mitchell and Jack Silvagni. There are also demo stations available with games like Splatoon 3 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, if you aren’t up for the on-stage challenge.

The Footy Festival is ongoing until Saturday, September 24, 2022. Attendance is free, so if you’re near Melbourne, maybe give it a go! See below for the full schedule, and click here for more info.

  • Friday, September 23, 9:00am - 6:30pm
