Northern NSW’s Finest Footballers Eager For The FFA National Youth Championships For Boys

September 20th, 2017


Over 450 of Australia’s finest football players are set to converge on Coffs Harbour to contest the FFA National Youth Championships for Boys next week.

The Championships, secured by Northern NSW Football, will take place from Monday 25 September – Friday 29 September at the C.ex International Stadium, Coffs Harbour, where 28 teams from around Australia will represent their State, and contest in two age divisions, 13 Years and 14 Years.

This year represents the final year of the Championships being held in Coffs Harbour under the existing bid agreement.

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

Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser said attracting visitors to regional NSW is one of the NSW Government’s top priorities.

“Supporting a wide range of events in our region provides a boost to our local visitor economy while showcasing our spectacular beaches, national parks and local attractions. We look forward to welcoming competitors and spectators to Coffs Harbour this week for another fantastic few days of football.”

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 both the Westfield National Youth Championships for Girls and the FFA National Youth Championships for Boys in Coffs Harbour since 2006, along with the generous support of Coffs City Council and Destination NSW,” Mr Eland said.

“These championships create a lot of opportunities for players to be identified by the FFA Technical Staff for future Australian team camps, the Joeys National Squad, and the potential to one day represent our country at the highest level.”

The Championships conclude on Friday 29 September when Champions will be decided before the presentation of trophies and medallions which will take place at 4:10 pm.
