Football SA is excited to announce the establishment of the inaugural Northern Schools Girls Football League (NSGFL).
Five northern schools including St Columba College, Trinity College, Xavier College, Gleeson College and Parafield Gardens High School will take part in the inaugural season commencing on Wednesday 18th May.
Football SA focuses on providing a lasting legacy to the game, using the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 to maximise participation opportunities for women and girls that will provide tangible outcomes for the football community beyond the event.
The five foundation schools and Football SA staff gathered at St. Columba College to launch the inaugural competition with a live Q & A with guest speakers: Football SA Women’s World Cup Legacy Ambassador & Adelaide United captain Isabel Hodgson and Adelaide United coach Adrian Stenta.
Football SA is excited to launch the NSGFL with the five foundation schools that focus on open girls (year 10-12), with a view of expanding the competition to more age groups next year. NSGFL will be the first of many competitions that will be launched at part of the participation pillar of the Football SA Women’s World Cup Legacy Plan.
Vice President of the Board and Chair of the Football SA Women’s World Cup Legacy Committee, Jane Rathjen stated:
‘We are excited to launch the first of many competitions contemplated in the Football SA Women’s World Cup Legacy Plan. Providing accessible competitions will open up opportunities to increase participation and retention in football and will empower women and girls to be involved in creating their desired legacy for football’.
