Sapphire Cup

Clubs from the National Premier Leagues Women’s NSW and Football NSW League One Women’s competitions are eligible to participate, as are senior association women’s clubs from across the state.

The Sapphire Cup replicates the existing men’s Waratah Cup knockout competition, deriving its name from the former ‘NSW Sapphires’ team who were part of the former Women’s National Soccer League.
