Female Football Week Kicks Off


Over the next ten days the Football NSW community will come together to celebrate 2023 Female Football Week from the 19th to 28th of May.

This year’s edition is shaping up as our biggest yet ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup coming to Australia and New Zealand in July.

The objective of Female Football Week is to drive female participation at all levels of the game.

“With the spotlight on our sport thanks to the World Cup, Female Football Week provides a great opportunity to raise awareness for our local clubs and participation pathways,” commented Football NSW’s Schools, Women’s and Girls Coordinator Kristen Prior.

“Football NSW is delivering several free events at Valentine Sports Park, but there is also a number of events being run at a local level across the state thanks to clubs and associations.

“We encourage anyone interested in football to get behind these events and celebrate female football in what is a massive year for our sport.”

Female Football Week event details can be found below.
