This weekend brings the first round of the Community Football kick-off, and will across the Northern Inland Football zone see over 5,500 players taking to the field.
Northern Inland Football, has seen over the past three years significant growth across all age groups, growing 40% since 2015.
Female participation in the region is currently 23% and an area of growth.
”It is an exciting time of the year, with players running onto the field for the first time, and all of the volunteers working together to get teams ready to take the field,” new Northern Inland Football general manager Julia Farina said.
NIF is geographically, the largest zone in the Northern NSW Football area, covering an area from Quirindi in the south, up to Tenterfield in the north and out west to Coonabarabran, Moree and Lightning Ridge. It has a strong membership that includes 39 clubs or associations, and a player base of approximately 5,500 registered players.
Farina added that NIF would like to thank all volunteers across the zone, and recognise the support provided by local businesses to the zone’s clubs, together making the football experience possible.
