TOUCH FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS

Coast to host major event
TERRY COLLINS
THE Coast will see a boost of more than $1M to its economy when NSW Touch Football and Central Coast Council host the 2019 Country Championships at Central Coast Regional Sporting and Recreational Complex in October.
Central Coast Mayor Jane Smith said the announcement was a great follow-up to the recent announcement of the venue’s hosting of the 2020 and 2022 NSW Junior Regional Championship.
 
“Touch football is a growing sport in our region and to be able to showcase the best the sport has to offer in NSW is a real coup for the Coast,” she said.
 
“It is great to see the Sporting Complex is living up to the promise of delivering major sporting events to our region.”
 
NSWTA General Manager Dean Russell said it was a significant undertaking to bring the event to the region.
 
“This particular area, and indeed those surrounding, have always been big supporters of the NSW Touch Association Country Championships,” said Russell.
 
“For many years now, local participants have travelled across the state to participate in this competition and now they have an opportunity to compete in their own back yard.”
 
The Championships will be held on October 19-20 with the best regional touch footballing talent competing to be crowned NSW Country’s best.
 
They serve as an important pathway for athletes looking to secure positions in the 2020 NSW Touch Football State of Origin team or attain higher representative honours.
 
Mr Russell said that with 1300 participants and officials, joined by family and friends, the event will deliver an expected economic impact of $1.3M into the region.
