Wanderers support 2017 National Indigenous Football Tournament

The Western Sydney Wanderers headed to Nowra last week to hold School Clinics and a mini World Cup tournament at the 2017 Indigenous Football Championship. 

Over 200 kids participated in the clinics and tournament, in partnership with Football NSW, that focused on technique, game understanding and improving confidence ahead of the Youth National Indigenous Football Championships. 

The Wanderers are proud supporters of Indigenous football and want to not only leave a lasting legacy but also provide a pathway for young footballers to follow their dreams.

Eora United defeated the defending champions Queensland Warrigal Dingoes 1-0 in the Men’s Final.
