2021 is set to be an incredible year for Virginia United Football Club as they embark on competing, for the first time, in the National Premier League Women (NPLW).
Led by NPLW Head Coach and NPLW Technical Director, Anthony Costa, the club is looking forward to making the step up to elite football.
“We are thrilled to have been awarded a NPLW licence. This is the result of hard work and we are looking forward to the upcoming challenge,” says Anthony.
“Having a NPLW licence allows us to provide a complete pathway for all of our female players, from junior community teams through to the elite level of senior NPLW,” says Anthony.
“We are determined to stay true to our club values and we will be working hard to make sure we build a sustainable NPLW program based on strong culture, player and coach development and growing the love of the game.”
