IFW22 Theme

The theme for IFW22 is “International best practice” and will focus on knowledge sharing within the international Indigenous football community on how to improve young Indigenous players’ access to the life-changing benefits of football.

Football can be a powerful vehicle for unlocking the potential of Indigenous peoples and creating pathways to transformational opportunities and overcoming social disadvantage. As we draw closer to Australia and New Zealand hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, IFW22 will bring the football community together to support inclusion, cultural recognition and diversity.

IFW22 Partners

We are grateful for the support from our official Indigenous Football Week 2022 partners.
