Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) has announced the thirty-four (34) players who have been selected to represent the region at Football Federation Australia’s (FFA) National Youth Championships for Boys in 13 and 14 Years.

More than 600 of Australia’s best young male footballers from around the country will compete from Monday 30 September until Friday 4 October 2019 at the newly renovated C.ex International Stadium in Coffs Harbour.

Each State Federation is represented by its top players with three Hyundai A-League Academy teams in addition participating including Newcastle Jets, Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar.

NNSWF Head of Football Development, Peter Haynes said NNSWF has had the pleasure hosting the tournament in Coffs Harbour for fourteen years and highlighted the talented pathways the Championships continue to create for players.

“Northern NSW Football along with the support of Coffs City Council and Destination NSW, have had the pleasure hosting the National Youth Championships for Girls and Boys since 2006,” Haynes said.

“There will be a number of technical directors and Football Federation Australia representatives at the tournament identifying players for future national squads.

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

The Championships, secured by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, will host thirty-six (36) teams from around Australia who will represent their State and compete for the title.

The 2018-19 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 all of which recognised the significance of the tournament as a catalyst for tourism and economic benefit to the Coffs Harbour region and the state of NSW.

The 2019 FFA National Youth Championships for Boys are proudly supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
