Live Screening Events for the Matilda’s World Cup Games
As the Female World Cup hits our shores this July, NSFA want to celebrate the Matildas by hosting Live Screening Events for their group stage games and (fingers crossed) knockout games.
We will be partnering with Local Councils to run events. We are also looking to hold mini world cup tournaments for players of all ages and abilities before the World Cup commences. The NSFA Dartboard will be at live sites and we will have prizes and giveaways during the events.
Stay tuned for details of live sites near you for Matildas matches. We are looking forward to a huge year of female football in the NSFA and welcome everyone to join in the events we have organised. Here is hoping that 2023 is the year of the Matildas!
