Registrations for the Western United Cup are in full swing as the girls only football tournament prepares to take place in Ballarat in late September and early October.
The tournament will take place over three days from Thursday September 29 to Saturday October 1, and Western United’s Women’s Integration Manager Amanda Stella said it will be an exciting event.
“The Western United Cup is going to be such a fantastic weekend for girls in Ballarat and right throughout Victoria who can come down and get involved in some fun, competitive football,” she said.
“With the excitement of our A-League Women team starting up this will give girls an amazing opportunity to be involved in and connected with the Green and Black.
“We are so thankful to the Victorian State Government and City of Ballarat for their support and can’t wait for the Western United Cup to kick off.”
The tournament will also be highlighted by a friendly match on the Saturday, where Western United’s A-League Women side will take to the pitch at Morshead Park.
The City of Ballarat, including Mayor of Ballarat Cr Daniel Moloney, held a Civic Reception at Town Hall on Thursday to celebrate Western United’s A-League Men Grand Final success.
Ballarat has been a major supporter of Western United since its inception in 2019, which matches played in the region in each of the Club’s three A-League Men seasons to date.
The State Government of Victoria and the City of Ballarat have been instrumental in creating the Western United Cup and will continue to be key contributors to Western United’s work on and off the pitch.
The Western United Cup will bring together girls from across the West in age groups from Under 10’s through to Under 18’s, with an open age bracket also included.
Each team registered for the tournament will be guaranteed to play at least four games across the weekend, with finals to take place for each age group and winners at each level to receive a trophy and gold medals.
Registrations are open now for teams to enter into the competition and give girls the best opportunity to have the Western United experience in Ballarat.
