About

The UNSW Football Club competes in two separate women’s competitions. NSW State League Women’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.

NSW Women’s State League

What is it?
The UNSW Football Club provides an elite female football path in the Eastern Suburbs with the UNSW Lions competing in the Football NSW State League Women’s competition.

Who is it for?
