Inner West to host Pride football

Sydney’s Inner West Council will unite with the Flying Bats FC, Sydney Rangers FC and Pride Football Australia to host an LGBTIQA+ 11-a-side soccer tournament set to coincide with Sydney World Pride next year.

The tournament is endorsed by Sydney World Pride as one of their official sporting events and will be delivered in partnership with the International Gay and Lesbian Football Association (IGLFA).

Sydney World Pride provides opportunities for the LGBTQ and broader community to celebrate, support and acknowledge the diversity and enrichment of LGBTQ communities.

The tournament will also be incorporated into the Pride Inner West Program that will promote and celebrate the various LGBTQ initiatives being supported across the Inner West during Sydney World Pride in 2023.

“The Inner West council is delighted for this event to be held in the Inner West and is happy to provide access to Tempe Reserve from 20 – 23 February 2023 for the tournament,” said Inner West Mayor, Darcy Byrne.

Chair of the Inner West Council’s World Pride Committee, Jessica D’Arienzo said, “We are proud to support and celebrate our diverse and vibrant community and LGBTQ football stars.”

“This inclusive tournament will be a highlight in our Pride Inner West Program, the festival will be a chance for family and friends to come together and enjoy a few days of fantastic football.”
