Football Australia: Get Football Australia programs in your school!

Riding high on the FIFA World Cup performances of the Subway Socceroos and CommBank Matildas, the popularity of football continues to grow, with more and more schools embracing Football Australia’s programs. 



Term 2 of 2023 saw 44,954 students across the country undertake a Football Australia program, contributing to a total of over 80,000 participants engaging with the world game for the year so far. 


The Sporting Schools statistics from Term 2 revealed that football clinched the top rank among school sports for the second consecutive year, reaffirming the popularity of the sport amongst school age kids. 


Launched during Term 2 to coincide with the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the Festival of Football program proved an instant hit, engaging 8,028 children in its initial roll out. This initiative emerged as the top choice for teacher-delivered bookings across Australia with the popularity soaring after the World Cup performance of the CommBank Matildas captured the country. 



Football Australia’s MiniRoos coach-delivered program was the most common package purchased of all programs across Australia, with over 2,800 sessions delivered in a 112 day period across the first two school terms, reflecting Football Australia's commitment to promoting the sport across the community. 


With over 70% of the yearly target already achieved in the first two terms, Football Australia's school outreach efforts are looking to take off again on the back of the CommBank Matildas’ FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023TM performance on home soil.

 

This success comes on the back of a bumper Term 1, where football reached 26,655 participants across over 100 sessions around Australia.
