Northern NSW Football hosted the third annual Football FIVE5 World Cup on Thursday evening at Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility.
17 men’s and women’s teams represented 15 different countries in a World Cup style five-a-side tournament.
Families and friends braved the cold to support their team and country, creating a wonderful atmosphere.
Held on the eve of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cupᵀᴹ, the event was a great way to celebrate inclusion, harmony and fun through the common language of football.
NNSWF Female Participation and Inclusion Officer Nat Boyd was thrilled that the tournament was a success.
“The tournament was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate multiculturalism and diversity in Australia,” Boyd said.
“It was great to see so many different countries represented in what was a night full of fun but also tough competition.
“Thank you to all the teams who participated and congratulations to the winning teams.”
