After receiving a grant from the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council, Bankstown District Amateur Football Association (BDAFA) in conjunction with its partners are running a series of events to encourage more women to become involved in the game of Football.

The festival will include the following events:

Both Sydney based W-League Clubs will be in attendance as well as representatives from the various BDAFA member Clubs.
