Female Football Week

Northern NSW Football is thrilled to announce its 2023 Female Football Week, the biggest celebration of women's football we’ve ever seen. 

This year's event is extra special as it coincides with the FIFA Women's World Cup being hosted in Australia and New Zealand. It's an incredible opportunity to showcase the talent and passion of female footballers, coaches, referees and volunteers in the community. 

According to NNSWF Female Participation and Inclusion Officer Nat Boyd, "the 2023 Female Football Week is going to be bigger and better than ever before. We have a range of exciting activities planned, including coaching and referee masterclasses, beginners football sessions, networking events, awards and gala days. There's something for everyone, from grassroots players to elite athletes." 

Clubs are encouraged to register their activities early to be a part of this incredible event. "By registering your club's activity, you'll have the opportunity to celebrate your existing players, recruit new players and engage female volunteers," Boyd said.  

"You'll also receive FFW updates, advertising collateral and extra exposure on the NNSWF website." 

The first 40 member clubs to register a Female Football Week activity will receive a FFW Club Activation Pack and go into the draw to win a $250 Veto Sports voucher.  

"Registering your club's activity is a great way to showcase your commitment to women's football and diversity and inclusion," Boyd said.  

"Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity to be a part of the biggest celebration of women's football in northern NSW." 

Registrations close at 5pm on Friday 28 April 2023. Once registered, clubs will be contacted to confirm their registration and receive a Club Information Pack and FFW Club Activation Pack.
