The National Youth Championships are Football Australia’s primary national football tournament for under-14s and 15s boys and under-14s and 16s girls. The competition will see teams from each of Football Australia’s State Federations compete over five days.
The Football Australia National Youth Championships for Boys will be held from September 20 to 24, while the Football Australia National Youth Championships for Girls will be held from October 18 to 22.
Northern NSW Football has hosted the championships since 2006 working closely with Coffs Harbour City Council, their sports unit and the community.
While the boys championships will remain at Coffs Harbour this year, the girls championships will be played at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.
The 2015-19 NNSWF bid was supported by long-time partner, Coffs Harbour City Council and sports unit, along with Destination NSW, with both recognising the significance of the tournament as a catalyst for tourism and economic benefit in the Coffs Harbour region and wider NSW and the partnership facilitating a strong bid.
