The 2010 NAB Cup was the Australian Football League (AFL) pre-season competition that was played before the 2010 home and away season. The games were played between 12 February and 13 March, with the first match being between West Coast and Essendon at Subiaco Oval. It was the last pre-season competition held in the current knockout format due to the entry of the Gold Coast Football Club into the AFL in 2011.[1]

For the first time, a game was held at Blacktown Olympic Park as part of the AFL's plan to increase the profile of Australian rules football in the Western Sydney Region before the introduction of the new Greater Western Sydney Football Club in 2012. The game was played between Sydney and Carlton.[2]

The first round fixtures were announced by the AFL on 27 October 2009.[3][4]
