Eilidh Mackay departs Northern Suburbs FA for FIFA


Northern Suburbs Football Association’s Eilidh Mackay has accepted a new role as the Women’s World Cup Legacy Manager at FIFA.

Having spent over eight years working within the NSFA football community, Mackay has occupied a variety of roles but always dedicated herself to growing the game with her natural enthusiasm and strong work ethic.

Since taking on the role of Head of Female Football, Mackay implemented the What’s Best For Her Strategy, placing NSFA at the forefront of transforming and supporting female football for all participants.

Female player retention within NSFA has greatly increased over the past three years which has resulted in a well-established network of Female Football Coordinators driving change within their clubs.

“The NSFA Board is very sad to see Eilidh leave us but thrilled at the new opportunity she has earned,” said NSFA’s President Ian Plant.

“Our loss is FIFA’s gain, and we are sure she will go on to even bigger and brighter things. In the time that she has been with the NSFA and Tigers she has had a huge impact on the Association, both as an inspiring coach and as a leader for the female game.

“She has helped to develop female football in the Northern Suburbs and activate the transformative What’s Best For Her vision. We will certainly miss her enthusiasm, energy, and expertise. We wish her all the best as she takes the next step in her career.”
