Clubs encouraged to celebrate National Volunteer Week this weekend

It is National Volunteer Week for 2023 and NNSWF is so grateful for everything our amazing volunteers do on and off the field.

The 7,000-plus NNSWF volunteers manage our clubs, coach our teams, run game days, mark the lines, cook the barbecues and do so many other jobs no one sees. Game days would not go ahead, and clubs would not survive without them and all the hard work they do behind the scenes, fuelled by their love for football.

“Volunteers are the lifeblood of our clubs,” Northern NSW Football CEO Peter Haynes said.

“We’re so thankful for our volunteers and the work they do. If you’re out and about at a game this weekend, make sure you thank a volunteer at your club and make them feel appreciated.”

To recognise the vital work of volunteers not only this week but every month, nominate a hardworking volunteer for a NNSWF Local Champion Award.

This is a chance to celebrate outstanding individuals doing great things on and off the pitch for your club.
