Northern Inland Football Youth NL1 teams to feature as Northern NSW Football releases draws for relaunched 2020 Premier Competitions

June 18th, 2020

Northern NSW Football has released draws for its relaunched 2020 Premier Competitions, with Northern Inland Football teams to feature in the NewFM Northern League One Youth season.

Premier Competitions were postponed indefinitely after the suspension of all football activities in early March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NSW government announced last week that senior community sport could resume from 1 July, with NNSWF Premier Competitions to now start or resume on the weekend of 11-12 July.

The 2020 National Premier Leagues NNSW competition, which was days away from starting before the suspension of football, will begin with five first grade fixtures on 12 July.

The Herald Women’s Premier League, which was halted after two incomplete rounds, will resume with four fixtures on 12 July.

The NewFM Northern League One first grade competition, which was also stopped after two incomplete rounds, will resume on 11 July.

In the Northern League One Youth competition, Northern Inland Football’s under-13s to under-16s teams will travel to the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility to face West Wallsend on 11 July.

NNSWF CEO David Eland said he can’t wait for the Premier Competitions to return.

“This is great news. These competitions are the showpieces for the game in our region,”Eland said.

“We understand how tough Premier Clubs are doing it during this period and we appreciate their patience, understanding and consultation as we worked towards getting back on the park.

“It is a real positive that our Premier Competitions now have a start date and we look forward to a great season ahead.”

NNSWF released its revised competition structures for its Premier Competitions last month.

The NSW Government has advised further easing of restrictions from 1 July to remove the limit of 500 people in attendance at an outdoor facility, replaced by one person per four square metres, which means limited crowds may be permitted at games.

“If this is the case, it will relieve some further financial pressure from Premier Clubs for season 2020 – we are currently investigating systems which may be able to aid clubs allow spectators,” Eland said.
