Northern NSW’s Finest Footballers to test themselves at the Westfield National Youth Championships for Girls

July 5th, 2017

Over 300 of Australia’s best young female footballers will converge on Coffs Harbour for Australia’s most esteemed junior football tournament, the Westfield National Youth Championships for Girls.

The Championships, secured by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, will take place from Monday, July 10 – Friday 14 July at the C.ex International Stadium, Coffs Harbour, where 20 teams from around Australia will represent their State, and contest in two age divisions, 14 Years and 15 Years.

The 2015-17 Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) bid was supported by long-time partner Coffs Harbour City Council and Sports Unit, along with the State’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, all recognising the significance of the tournament as a catalyst for tourism and economic benefit to the Coffs Harbour region and State with the partnership facilitating a strong bid.

NNSWF Chief Executive Officer, David Eland said NNSWF has had the pleasure of hosting the Championships and highlighted the talented pathways that the Championships create for the players involved.

“Northern NSW Football has had the pleasure of hosting the Westfield National Youth Championships for Girls in Coffs Harbour since 2006, along with the generous support of Coffs City Council and Destination NSW,” Mr Eland said.

“Last year’s Championships saw four representatives from Northern NSW’s squads participating in the tournament, identified by the FFA Technical Staff to have the opportunity to play for the Young Matildas and Junior Matildas National sides.”

“These opportunities highlight how invaluable the Championships are in providing young female players with the chance for identification for future Australian team camps and the potential to one day represent our country at the highest level,” Mr Eland concluded.

The Championships conclude on Friday 14 July when Champions will be decided before the presentation of trophies and medallions which will take place at 3:45 pm.

The FFA National Youth Championships have been hosted in Coffs Harbour by Northern NSW Football continuously since 2006.
