The Vic Bowl is the Final Game played between the two best teams throughout the Gridiron Victoria Season. The Juniors Championship game is known as the Jr Vic Bowl. Both games have been renamed the TGI Fridays Vic Bowl to reflect a recent sponsorship arrangement.

The most accomplished Junior team is the Croydon Rangers winning it 6 times with their most recent win coming in 2012 with a 34 - 0 win over the Monash Warriors.
