NNSWF hosts third annual Football FIVE5 World Cup

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.”
