Rebel Play Football Round to encourage engagement

Football West News

The Hyundai A-League will celebrate the rebel Play Football Round this weekend to promote junior football registrations around Australia for the upcoming grassroots season.

Perth Glory will aim to follow last weekend’s 3-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers when they take on Adelaide United.

According to the Australian Sports Commission’s AusPlay Survey, football continues to be the largest club-based participation sport in Australia, engaging over 1.3 million people across all participation segments.

“Football is a sport for all,” said Football Federation Australia CEO David Gallop.

“Starting from ALDI MiniRoos, which is a great way to introduce football to girls and boys aged between four and 11, all the way to the ranks of the Westfield Matildas and Caltex Socceroos.”

“The rebel Play Football Round is another opportunity for us to highlight the entire player pathway from the girls and boys, mums and dads at the grassroots, to the women and men as the elite levels of the Westfield W-League and Hyundai A-League.”

The 2018 edition of the rebel Play Football campaign will once again support the annual recruitment drive for grassroots coaches and referees, who along with players are the game’s greatest advocates. Coaches and referees at grassroots level play a significant role in creating a positive experience for players, which helps develop their passion for the game.

Players, coaches and referees can join the game by logging onto Australia’s biggest online sports registration portal – www.playfootball.com.au.
