Churches Football group to celebrate century invite

CELEBRATING a century of muddy boot studs, the Churches Football Association (CFA) is inviting friends, supporters, officials and all former players to come and take a trip down memory lane while enjoying a great meal at Club Marconi on August 2.

Former chairman of Soccer Australia and CFA alumni, David Hill, along with former captain and living Socceroo legend, Paul Wade, will speak on the night in commemoration of the legendary collective.
First known as the NSW Protestant Churches Soccer Football Association during their inaugural year of 1919, the group has always maintained the importance of sport and faith in building a better community.
That modus operandi served them well, allowing the group to grow to be the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere in the 70s and 80s.
The association has also seen quite a few now famous Aussies holding up their banner over the years.
Besides the speakers, the association has been home to Socceroo great Tim Cahill, Fijiian national team captain Pita Rabo and former prime minister John Howard to mention a few.
If you would like to be there to usher in the CFA’s next 100 years, then book your tickets at or at the association’s website at
