Who We Are

Football's Governing Body in Northern NSW

Northern NSW Football is one of nine member federations in Australia. We’re responsible for the game of football and its delivery across northern NSW. 

Our region's southern boundary starts at the northernmost point of the Central Coast. Heading north, the area fans out from the coastline to include the Hunter Valley, Upper Hunter, Gunnedah, Narrabri and Moree, right up to the Queensland border. All other towns and cities in NSW fall under the Football NSW member federation.

By 2023, in northern NSW we aim to have:

Our strategy focuses on striving for better experiences for all participants, leading the way, nurturing talent and producing professional players. We also want to ensure the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand™ creates a lasting legacy for football in our region.

We provide a range of services that support our vision and strategy, including:

  • Increasing participation for all - we offer a range of services and programs developed to increase participation for women and girls, Indigenous, cultural and linguistically diverse players, older Australians and people with disability. We’re also encouraging future generations of players through our school programs. 
  • Leading the way - as an organisation, we will lead towards our shared purpose by focusing on governance, our people and our culture. We’ll do this through listening to each other, pinpointing best practices and supporting our member zones in aligning with our plans. 
  • Talent Development - we want to empower clubs to be at the heart of player development, particularly supporting the development opportunities for talented girls. By developing better coaches, we also aim to increase the depth and quality of talented players throughout northern NSW.
  • 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Legacy - we aim to harness the energy behind this world event to partner with government to improve facilities for females, significantly increase the number of women and girls playing the game and showcase strong leadership opportunities for women across the sport. We also want to promote the potential for northern NSW as a destination for football-related tourism and events.
