This season is a chance to see where football can take you and your mates whilst keeping active, staying fit, and being healthy.

The 2018 Play Football campaign with the slogan ‘Football, We All Play’ will include a recruitment drive for grassroots Coaches, Referees and Volunteers, who along with players are the game’s greatest advocates and are three key roles that have a great influence on a player’s experience.

This year’s campaign will also build on our MiniRoos program – a smaller version of football that provides boys and girls aged 4 – 11 with a fun introduction to the world game.
MiniRoos it is all about having fun, learning new skills and making life-long friends and will be delivered by grassroots clubs across Australia.

As well as this, the campaign will also look at encouraging girls and women to play our wonderful game continuing to ride off the wave of the amazing success our Matildas have put together in 2017 amongst many other key achievements in the female game.

Players, coaches and referees can register to “Play Football” by logging onto Australia’s biggest online sports registration portal, which can be found at

You can find out more about registering to play, coach, referee or volunteer at the Football NSW Play Football website.

Stay fit and healthy this year and join the game!
