Nick Galatas on how Australia’s National Second Division is shaping up ahead of 2024 deadline


The idea of a National Second Division below the A-League Men has been in discussion for some time now.

Chairman of the Association of Australian Football Clubs (AAFC), Nick Galatas, has discussed how the National Second Division is shaping up ahead of the organisation’s 2024 deadline.

“FA [Football Australia] met with the various clubs and sought feedback from the clubs on a state-based format,” Mr Galatas told Soccerscene.

“After attending those meetings, we thought it would be helpful to convene all the interested clubs from around Australia – after they’d had time to consider what the FA put to them and the issues about which FA sought their feedback.”

The AAFC represents the collective of National Premier League clubs looking to initiate the National Second Division.

According to Mr Galatas, it will be beneficial to have a National Second Division, however, it must take into account the clubs’ potential in order to guarantee its success.

“What we’re aiming for with the National Second Division is enabling more strong clubs to develop within it,” he said. “Ultimately, I think the second division is very important.”
