FFA will host an ASEAN-Australia Football Exchange in the week of the Australian Government’s ASEAN-Australia Special Summit.

There will be a week-long training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport and Valentine Sports Park with the Young Matildas and U19 Thailand team before a friendly at Leichhardt Oval.

This will be the first time since July 2017 the Young Matildas have played on home soil.   

There will also be a workshop for female football administrators working in ASEAN Member Associations.

They will spend a week in Sydney discussing women’s football in ASEAN, and learning from Australian and international sports administrators.

FFA has previously had representatives from Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam attend the workshops.

Lastly a session of the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Council.

“Football Federation Australia has been a member of the ASEAN Football Federation since 2012, and we are committed to working with our fellow ASEAN Member Associations to continue to grow the game in our region,” said FFA Chief Executive Officer David Gallop.

“With football commonly understood and a shared passion across the region, it demonstrates the world game’s unique capacity to bring the people of South-East Asia together – and we are appreciative of the Australian Government’s support in assisting us to do this," he said.
