Football Mid North Coast (FMNC) and North Coast Football (NCF) have announced they will be working towards forming a Coastal Premier League (CPL) for the 2020 season.

The CPL will become the most elite league for 18,000 participants combined in the Mid North Coast and North Coast.

In the proposed inaugural season, five (5) FMNC and five (5) NCF Premier League sides, each fielding a First Grade and Reserve Grade side, will compete over an 18 Round Season with the intent of alternating the Grand Final hosting rights between Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie.

The proposed competition has the support of both Boards and has been endorsed by the senior clubs at meetings in both Zones.

Chairman of FMNC, Mike Parsons shared his excitement over the ‘joint venture’.

“I am looking forward to showcasing our regional talent to a broader audience,” Parsons said.

“The Coastal Premier League will improve the standard of our local football and provides a pathway for our talented players, coaches and match officials.”

Chairman of NCF, Wendy Schafer echoed Parson’s comments also adding her excitement of the opportunity it will bring for the entire community.

“The formation of the Coastal Premier League is the obvious progression to strengthen Football across the two Zones,” Schafer said.

Premier Clubs within the region have been notified and expressions of interest will be called from clubs in the near future.
