The Sutton Cup

Boys Primary School Competition

The NSFA provides over 17,800 members between North Sydney and Brooklyn the opportunity to play football each weekend in local community competitions from ages Under 6 – Over 45’s.

The Sutton Cup intends to promote the continued growth of primary school aged boys participating in our weekly competitions.

Bringing together primary school teams from across the Northern Suburbs of Sydney, the tournament intends to provide a fun and enjoyable playing experience for boys to showcase their skill and teamwork whilst representing their school.

The Sutton Cup is free to enter for all schools based in the NSFA region!

2024 Tournament Details

The inaugural NSFA Sutton Cup will take place across two days of Term 1, 2024 at North Turramurra Recreation Area, providing all primary school aged boys in Year 3 – 6 the chance to take part in our association wide football gala day.

Behind the Name

The Sutton Cup is named after Ben Sutton who is a Pararoo with 12 international caps and 3 goals for the national side. Ben is also heavily involved in the NSFA community as a player, coach and an educator at North Sydney United FC. He has been a huge presence in the International Day of People w/ Disability Gala Day that NSFA has been involved with for 3 years and hosted in December 2023. Ben’s biggest success story is probably the creation of the Pararoos Development Centre (PDC), that he continues to manage and run today. The PDC was started in 2020 and aims to provide footballing development training to children and adults with Cerebral Palsy and Acquired Brain Injury.
