Registrations for soccer across the region have opened.
Northern Inland Football opened their registrations at the start of the month and are hoping they can maintain their numbers again in 2020.
Soccer is the number one participation sport in Australia and last year the Northern Inland region had a 4.2 per cent increase in junior players in the eight to 11 years age group.
"The popularity of our sport continues to grow each year, the increase of players is reflective of the accessibility of the game throughout all seasons, not just traditional winter, however other formats such as TAFE NSW Summer Football," Northern NSW Football chief executive David Eland said.
Registrations are open and more information on local clubs can be found at northernnswfootball.com.au
