Flood Recovery Hub

The football family is coming together to assist flood impacted communities.

Here on the Flood Recovery Hub you will find:

Survey - club’s flood damaged football assets

  • Football Australia, Northern NSW Football and Member Zones are collaborating on a survey of damage to club’s football assets.
  • Gathering this information allows Football Australia to present the Commonwealth government with a broad view of flood impacts across NSW and Queensland.

Financial relief

Community football clubs are eligible for financial relief from several sources:


Northern NSW Football support


  • NNSWF is working closely with Football Australia and Football NSW to lobby government at all levels for support.
  • A coordinated approach provides focused lobbying to government decision makers that will maximise outcomes for clubs.


  • There are several grants and funding packages available to impacted clubs (see above)
  • NNSWF team members have worked directly with government on behalf of clubs to access some packages and will engage a grant writing specialist to assist clubs with other opportunities.


  • NNSWF’s advanced order through First Touch Football Supplies of balls, portable goals, corner flags, bibs and markers will soon be allocated based on need and delivered to impacted clubs.
  • NNSWF's appreciation is extended to Mitre for their generous donation of 1,400 footballs.
  • Thank you to supplies who have provided equipment at cost or at a discounted rate: Umbro, Alpha, Summit and Eagle Sports.
  • In total $40,000 has been committed to essential equipment to assist clubs get back on the pitch when they are ready.
