Newcastle Cup set to boost the footballing community of the Hunter

Due to the setbacks the football community has faced due to the COVID19 pandemic, a new competition has been announced in the city of Newcastle.

Sports Clique announced plans to host a small-sided football competition in what would be called the Newcastle Cup, in December this year as a way to showcase and celebrate the football in this area and make up for time missed due to the lockdown. The two-day event is set to take place over a weekend and have players of all ages from across the Hunter participate.

Edgeworth Eagles NPL player Aaron Oppedisano says that playing some more local football in Newcastle is just what the sporting community needs.
