Grassroots

Football NSW spans 33 associations across the state, representing over 650 community clubs and more than 200 000 players. 

It's estimated that each year in New South Wales a hundred thousand matches are played. The local players, coaches, volunteers and parents involved in Grassroots football around the state make up the backbone of the sport and are invaluable members of the football family.
