In a landmark announcement for football in the Canberra region, the ACT Government last week pledged budget funding for the development of a new ‘home of football’ site in Throsby.
The home of football
The home of football will be a multimillion-dollar football precinct. It will proudly feature futsal courts, a mixture of synthetic and grass field and associated amenities.
The precinct will host Canberra United matches, development programs, National Premier League (NPL) matches and grassroots football. It will also become the administrative headquarters for football in the ACT region.
A bright future for football
ACT has a bright future of football to look forward to, with Football Federation Australia announcing that the Caltex Socceroos, Westfield Matildas and Westfield Junior Matildas will all play international matches in Canberra over the next 18 months.
This will include a Socceroos Round 2 World Cup Qualification match for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The Matildas, currently contesting the Women’s FIFA World Cup in France, will play either an international friendly or Cup of Nations match.
