The ultra-impressive history of the PlayStation 4 NPL NSW clubs will be celebrated for the third successive season with this weekend’s ‘Heritage Round’ taking centre stage across various football pitches in Sydney and Wollongong.
Round 12 will see all six matches celebrate the wealth of history behind NSW football, and the contribution which those clubs have made to the football landscape since the start of the last century.
Club legends and epic matches will be celebrated during the week leading into Heritage Round, as well as on match days themselves.
Keep an eye out for a special colour piece on Sydney Olympic’s number one fan, Andrea ‘The Legend’ Hatziannnou, as Football NSW goes one on one with one of the greatest fans this country has ever seen since the old National Soccer League days – watch this space.
Some clubs will be playing in special "retro" jerseys such as the Rockdale City Suns as the whole of the PS4 NPL NSW Men's competition gets behind Heritage Round, which continues to be a much loved date on the football calendar.
Football NSW Media Manager Mark Stavroulakis paid tribute to the clubs' hard work in promoting the game and nurturing talent.
“It’s great that Football NSW honour these clubs who have given the game so much here in Australia and NSW, with the special Heritage Round initiative that commenced two seasons ago.
“Each club has played a pivotal role in the development of our game and we have seen so many past and present Socceroos stars come through these ranks.
“I wish all clubs the best of luck in what will be a monumental weekend of football for the PS4 NPL NSW Men’s competition.”
