National Youth Championships 2023 Fixtures Released

Northern NSW Football are delighted to announce the fixtures for the National Youth Championships 2023. 

48 teams from Football Australia’s nine State and Territory Member Federations will meet in Sydney and Wollongong in October. 

The National Youth Championships is Football Australia’s premier national youth tournament forming an important part of the talent identification program and the national team pathway. Many current Subway Socceroos and Commonwealth Bank Matildas are NYC alumni.

NNSWF will send one team in each age group for the Girls and Boys tournaments including Under-14s Girls, Under-16s Girls, Under-14s Boys and Under-15s Boys teams. 

The Under-15s Boys and Under-16s Boys tournaments will each have 13 teams competing with a two-group system being employed. NNSWF’s Under-15s and Under-16s teams are in Group B of their respective competitions. 

From 2-6 October, the two Boys’ Age Groups will take place at Valentine Sports Park, Glenwood. 

The Under-14s Girls' age group will involve 12 teams with the NNSWF team in Group A and the NNSWF’s Under-16s Girls team are in Group B with 10 teams competing across their competition. 

The Girls’ age groups will run concurrently from October 9-13 utilising the premium sporting facilities of WIN Stadium and JJ Kelly Park in Wollongong. 

Over the two weeks, 118 group stage matches will take place before the semi-final stage of the round-robin tournament is reached. 

NNSWF Technical Director Ryan Doidge is looking forward to the tournaments. 

“Northern NSW Football are excited to provide an opportunity for the most talented players in our football community to showcase their skills amongst the most talented players from across the nation,” Doidge said. 

“The National Youth Championships are the culmination of a year-long talent identification process and I hope that our players use this tournament as a stepping stone in their continuation in the talented player pathway. Best of luck to all of our players and coaches who are taking part in the tournaments.”
