Football Australia Hosts Development Workshop in India

Over the past week, Football Australia has been delivering public diplomacy and capacity-building initiatives in India, joined by former Matilda and Julie Dolan medallist Ash Sykes, and former Canberra United player/current Canberra Olympic coach Nicole Begg.

Joined by Refereeing Experience and Engagement Lead Daniel Goodwin, the group delivered a two-day workshop for over 100 referees and coaches sharing two decades of experience in the Australian game.

Organised alongside the Mumbai Football Association (MFA) and supported by the All India Football Federation (AIFF) and the Western India Football Association (WIFA), the coaching workshop was specifically tailored to female coaches and coaches working with women and girls.
