About

The UNSW Football Club competes in two separate men’s competitions. NSW State League Men’s is our highest level of competition with our teams competing against opponents from across the state for a chance at promotion into Premier League. We also field teams in the local Eastern Suburbs Football Association (ESFA) competition which is geared towards a more social appreciation of the sport, while still striving to be competitive in our respective divisions.
