Capital Football’s historic 2022 Cerebral Palsy National Championships tilt will begin on Saturday 24 September with an early morning kick-off against Queensland, one of three Group matches they will play.
Having been drawn into Group A, Head Coach Kelly Stirton’s all-female selection, the first in the history of the tournament, will face stiff opposition. Following the Queensland match, the squad will take on New South Wales Navy and Western Australia.
“It’s certainly a tough schedule, particularly with two matches on the opening day, but the playing group is excited to take on the challenge and is looking forward to the fixtures,” Stirton commented.
“The way the tournament is scheduled, means we will play at least five games across the three days of the National Championship which is reminiscent of tournament football the world over.
“We are extremely happy that we have been given this opportunity to showcase the talent of our athletes and we thank Capital Football for their support.”
The team will arrive in the Gold Coast for the tournament for the classification day on Friday 23 September before action begins in earnest 24-hours later.
