Official 2023 NPL NSW men’s league launched

·

The official 2023 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s and Football NSW Leagues 1 and 2 Men’s competitions were launched today in the presence of players, administrators, and media at Valentine Sports Park.

The theme was clear from the beginning, “Support Your Local Club”, as players from all 47 clubs scattered across NSW took part in the launch hosted by Ben Homer and Adamo De Nigris with support play from Samantha Jurman.

Celebrating his first Men’s competition launch since his appointment in late December, Football NSW CEO John Tsatsimas, was eagerly anticipating a memorable season ahead for all clubs involved.

“2023 promises to be one of the biggest and most exciting seasons yet,” Mr Tsatsimas said.

“Apart from the hot bed of talent we see week in week out at the highest level in this state, a strong emphasis has been placed on the quality of refereeing and coaching which has now further enhanced via the NPL and Leagues competitions.

“2023 will also see the introduction of a playoff for promotion and relegation; the highest possible stakes on the line, which only adds to the drama and suspense this season will bring.

“Our message is clear, get out and support your local NPL NSW and Leagues clubs.

“There’s a fantastic quality of football that exists in our backyard so get out and get behind our clubs in NSW.”

Reinforcing the statement that football is back better than ever in NSW, a strong panel featuring current ex-Socceroo and now Wollongong Wolves coach David Carney, Mt Druitt Town Rangers’ former Socceroos star Tarek Elrich and former A-Leagues sharpshooter and 2022 NPL NSW Men’s Golden Boot winner Roy O’Donovan now with Sydney Olympic, kicked off the chat proceedings.

Various player representatives from each of the leagues also had the opportunity to discuss their views on the season to the audience followed by a referees panel headed by leading Football NSW officials Amber Morris and Michael Weiner.

The NPL NSW Men’s competition kicks off on Friday, February 3 while the League 1 and 2 Men’s competitions commence on Saturday, February 4.

The NPL NSW Women’s and League 1 Women’s Launch will be the next major launch that will take place on Saturday, March 4.
