The 2024 Sapphire Cup Round 1 and 2 draws were officially announced on Tuesday at Football NSW’s headquarters in Glenwood.

A total of 62 women’s clubs, 41 of which will hail from local community football teams from across NSW (along with National Premier Leagues Women’s NSW and Football NSW League One sides), found out their fate on Tuesday as Football NSW’s Legacy Plan Development Officer, Community Football & Member Services Trudy Simmons alongside Football NSW’s Head of Community & Member Services, Community & Member Services Aaron Dibdin took part as special guests in the official draw.

“It’s great to see the hype and promotion circled around the Sapphire Cup following on from a successful opening year in 2023 which saw APIA Leichhardt FC crowned inaugural Champions,” said Football NSW’s Competitions Coordinator Wade Giovenali.

“The women’s game has grown from strength to strength especially after the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ and we will certainly see that flow on effect during the Cup with more eyeballs on what is set to be a huge year for all clubs, players and officials involved.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing some Cup magic in the female game in 2024.”

The Sapphire Cup derives its name from the former ‘NSW Sapphires’ team who were part of the former Women’s National Soccer League.
