Capital Football are proud to announce the makeup of the PS4 National Premier Leagues competition for the 2017 season.
Capital Football’s premier competition for Men and Boy’s will feature all of the teams from the previous season, a great sign for football in the area, who will be joined by one more club from NSW.
The Riverina Rhinos will make their debut in the competition, while the previously standalone Canberra United Academy and FFA Centre of Excellence development programs will align as one for match days.
The Riverina Rhinos will represent the south-west region of New South Wales, and have competed for a number of years in Football NSW leagues.
Capital Football CEO Phil Brown said the organisation is looking forward to having another strong club join the growing league.
“We are excited to welcome the Rhinos to the Capital Football family, and look forward to seeing their players test themselves against the region’s best.”
The consolidation of the Centre of Excellence and Canberra United Academy will see the former maintain their position in the NPL proper, while the Academy will field teams in NPL age grade leagues.
The outlook is bright for our NPL sides, with Canberra well and truly on the footballing radar following Canberra Olympic’s enthralling run to the semi-finals of the FFA Cup this season.
The support of the football community is essential for the sustainability of such a strong league, and Capital Football would like to thank all those involved for their continuing support
