Six Northern NSW community clubs participated in the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 match between England and Denmark as FIFA Flag Bearers and National Flag Bearers.
24 representatives from Muswellbrook FC, North Companions FC, Corindi Red Rock FC, Coutts Crossing FC, Westlawn Tigers and Bellbird Junior FC travelled down to the Sydney Football Stadium to be a part of the once-in-a-lifetime experience.
As Flag Bearers, the clubs had the opportunity to walk on the field and be a part of the pre-match ceremony.
“It was a great opportunity for clubs from NNSWF to experience the World Cup from a unique perspective. The chance for flag bearers to share the pitch with some of the best teams in the world will be an unforgettable experience for those involved,” NNSWF Legacy Development Officer Joseph Wright said.
The opportunity to be Flag Bearers at the FIFA Women’s World Cup is a reward that was offered to clubs accredited in the Football Australia Club Changer club development program. Football Australia also offered over 200 FIFA Women’s World Cup tickets available to accredited clubs.
“NNSWF continues to lead the nation with engagement in the Club Changer Program. It is amazing that regional clubs have the opportunity to be directly involved in the FIFA Women’s World Cup,” NNSWF Project Manager Club Development Phillip Andrews said.
NNSWF is looking forward to welcoming Adamstown JFC, Tuncurry Forster FC, Lismore Thistles and Old Bar Barbarians FC who will take on Flag Bearer duties at Stadium Australia on August 12 for a Quarter Final match.
