The UNSW Football Club competes in the local Eastern Suburbs Football Association (ESFA) competition. ESFA teams are geared to a more social appreciation of the sport and the club is constantly looking to welcome new players in both our men’s and women’s competitions.

In 2020, the ESFA competition consisted of over 11 men’s and 1 women’s all age divisions, with UNSW fielding 12 teams across over half of these divisions. As such, the club has options to support a range of skills and levels of competition to suit everyone from beginners to seasoned competitors.


Our men’s teams play in both the Saturday and Sunday competitions, with women’s on Sundays only. Game times range from morning to afternoon, with draws released at the beginning of the season. The 2021 season will start in April. Teams are open to both students and non-students.


Most ESFA teams train once a week on Wednesday nights at our home ground, the David Phillips Sports Complex in Daceyville. Training is broken up into two sessions, either 6:30pm to 8:00pm or 8:00pm to 9:30pm.
