Football NSW is pleased to announce that next year’s Female Football Week will be held during the period 25 May to 2 June 2019.
With Football NSW being the pioneer and commencing Female Football Week to coincide with Mother’s Day back in 2014, the event evolved into a national celebration around International Women’s Day from 2016.
Following Football Federations Australia’s recent announcement of a new national approach to celebrating and promoting females in football, Member Federations could again select a timing that was most suitable for the delivery of Female Football Week locally.
Stuart Hodge, Football NSW CEO, is delighted that females’ participation in football will be celebrated during the community club winter season.
“Female Football Week is always a wonderful event to highlight females involved in all aspects of football – playing, coaching, refereeing, volunteering and administration. We now have the possibility mid-season – when all of our Clubs and Associations are active and more settled into their competitions – to celebrate and promote opportunities for girls and women to become and remain involved in football.”
Female Football Week is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the immense growth of women’s football at all levels of the game and acknowledge and promote the important role women play in developing football. In 2019 Female Football Week will run from May 25th – June 2nd in the lead up to the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The objective of Female Football Week is to drive female participation at all levels of the game.
