Sydney FC kicked off March celebrating Female Football Week with a host of community appearances and school visits, as the female game continues to rise in stature.
With the Westfield Matildas ranked in the top five in the world and Sydney FC’s Westfield W-League squad making another Grand Final, there’s no better time for the stars of the women’s game to be heralded for their feats.
The Sky Blues’ Community Team first visited Peakhurst United FC and the St. George Football Association to celebrate their Pink Ribbon Day before attending a Female Gala Day held by Community Partner Football United at Valentine Sports Park.
The Sky Blues also ran a host of clinics across the city, with Banksia Road PS in the Blacktown District Amateur Football Association and Woonona HS in the Football South Coast district welcoming our esteemed group of coaches.
Sydney FC Community Football Manager Paul Reid praised the week and its activities.
“At Sydney FC we welcome everyone to play football, and Female Football week is the perfect initiative to help continue to grow the women’s game,” Reid said.
“Taking in so many schools and football club visits throughout the week it’s clear how massive the women’s game is now and how talented the players are.”
Sydney FC’s football clinics will be continuing this autumn school holidays and are a great way for children to foster their love of football all the while making new friends and developing their ability.
