The Western United Cup is exactly four weeks away and the second edition is already looming as an even bigger and better version of the pilot last year.
A total of 42 teams are registered to compete in the girls-only junior football teammate, already more than last year’s total with registrations still open for another two weeks.
Divisions are open for teams starting from Under 9’s and going all the way up to a Youth competition for Under 21’s players, accommodating all levels for a spectacular weekend of football.
This year, the Western United Cup is set to go from Friday to Sunday, taking place right in the middle of the September school holidays for the perfect family weekend.
A number of clubs have returned after enjoying last season’s inaugural Western United Cup, including Brighton Apollos, Caroline Springs George Cross and local favourites Ballarat SC and Ballarat City.
Alongside the clubs making a comeback at this year’s event, there are set to be a number of first-time competitors with FC Bulleen Lions and Geelong Galaxy set to make the trip to Ballarat.
It’s also not only Victorian players this year, with an interstate team set to compete for the first time in the form of a Southern Tasmania team in the Under 13/14’s division.
Having pledged to make the Western United Cup even bigger in 2023 and alongside the support of Ballarat City Council and the Victorian State Government, Western United will continue to promote the involvement of females in football following the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
There is still plenty of time to get your own registrations in to compete for the silverware on offer and enjoy the surrounds of a fantastic weekend for the whole family.
Away from the football pitches, there will be food trucks with a selection of options for lunch and dinner and delicious sweets throughout the day, Western United merchandise and plenty of other games and fun activities to take part in.
Get your team locked in and ready for one of the biggest weekends of the junior football season. You won’t want to miss it.
