Their biggest addition is Natalie De Marco who returns from overseas to bolster an impressive squad which will be fighting for the highest honours this season.

Phoenix Futsal Club

For Phoenix Futsal Club this season is about the development and consolidation of their squad under the stewardship of Cristian Berios who will mentor the team as coach. Phoenix Futsal Club just missed the top four last time out but will be looking to players like Lara Coward and Emma Vandervelde to lead the side around.

Raiders Futsal Club

Whilst they have a small squad but Raiders Futsal Club will be ready to go in the FPL2 Open Womens competition this weekend. It is a team which is built on juniors which has come through the Raiders Futsal Club system and keen to play under coach Antonio Marco. Savannah Seixas is one big in for the club after some time in the Futsal Premier League and will help the side to maintain their position as a top four side in this competition.

SD Raiders FC

SD Raiders Futsal are keen to get back into some futsal action and the FPL2 Open Womens competition starting this weekend. They will be a squad that features some familiar names to those who follow the League One Womens outdoor competition which includes Sarah Mandile, Kiara Coscia and Jessica Neville. Their goal is enjoy their time back on the futsal court, score some goals and try and improve on their seventh-place finish in 2019-20.

South Coast Taipans

Beaten Grand Finalists in 2019-20, South Coast Taipans are looking to go one better this FPL2 Open Womens season with a youthful outlook for the squad. The Taipans have picked up former Boomerangs player Ellen Brown and bring in Abi Jordan after a stint overseas to bolster the squad. Bobby Mazevski will take charge of the team again and expects them to be a side that improves across the balance of the season once they gel.

Sydney City Eagles

Sydney City Eagles will be looking to soar up the FPL2 Open Womens ladder this season after their eighth-place finish last time out. The Eagles have a strong squad which will take the court for them in 2022 which includes Hannah and Emma Voloder, Montana Bolzan and Melina Manna. They will also be under the leadership of Roy Perre again and should make some noise in the competition and fly up the ladder.

Sydney Futsal Club have shown themselves to be a top tier side in the Open Womens competition and aim to make NC of Indigenous Excellence a tough place for sides to visit and take some points.
