Football NSW is in the midst of celebrating Female Football Week which sees various programs and promotions implemented to support women in football.

Female Football Week is a great opportunity to celebrate the opportunities available for female participants to experience our great game from all different viewpoints as Football NSW Game Development Manager Hayley Todd pointed out.
“Female football opportunities are continuously growing and FNSW are proud to support and acknowledge all females in our sport.
