The Western Sydney Wanderers have launched their fourth consecutive Schools Cup competition, continuing the club's goal of encouraging football participation in a safe and supportive environment.
The Wanderers Schools Cup involves all parts of the local football community in Western Sydney and is a gateway for players interested in association and professional football.
The Round Robin tournament is held over Terms 2 and 3 of the school year and endeavours to get students involved from Year 5 in primary school to Year 8 in high school.
Now in its fourth year, the competition embraces the key principles of sportsmanship, physical activity and social interaction. Already the tournament has seen 25 different schools in Western Sydney compete in the 2016 version (comprising of 47 teams across the board). Entries are still open for any school who has not registered.
Along with the increase in teams entered this year there has also been a massive increase in female participation with 207 girls competing so far.
