Historic club merger confirms commitment to the future of representative football in North West Sydney
NWS Koalas FC and NWS Spirit FC are proud to officially announce the merging of both clubs for the 2022 winter season.
The new entity will see the unification of previously autonomous female and male football operations under the one banner of NWS Spirit Football Club and will continue to proudly display the Koala logo.
This a landmark time for the region and follows the recent merging of the North West Sydney Women’s Association and the Gladesville Hornsby Football Association to form North West Sydney Football Ltd.
"The vision was to pool resources to provide a best practice for both females and males"
- Tim Martin (previous NWS Koalas FC President and now Board member) stated.
“We are now looking as a collective to raise the standards and amenities, to provide a truly best practice environment and pathway for our players and coaches.” We are already realising the benefits of the combined thinking with our player pathways, strength and conditioning practices, and coach development; the future is looking very exciting” Martin added.
Frank Marchi (NWS Spirit FC chair) added that “the Club is very excited to work hand in hand with the local Association and the local community to establish itself as a force both on and off the park; especially as we further develop the home of North West Sydney Football at Christie Park..”
“Football at the NSW National Premier League level is very competitive and we are looking forward to our Club showcasing the region’s talent in the upcoming seasons.”
