Women in Football Group Launched

The Women in Football Association was launched on 26 June by the NSW Minister for Sport, the Hon John Sidoti, with the support of Football Federation Australia (FFA), modelled on a similar organisation in the United Kingdom.

The not-for-profit national association, specifically established to support women wanting to participate at any level in the sport, has eight committee members, all of whom have had experience in football from grassroots to elite level including the CEO of the Alannah and Madeline Foundation Lesley Podesta, head coach of Central Coast Mariners Alen Stajcic, media identity George Donikian and international football reform advocate Bonita Mersiades.

The Women in Football Association aims to address the gender imbalance in the game and improve the representation of women in the game, by challenging barriers to greater participation, lobbying for change in football, and refashioning attitudes towards women working in football.
