The Big Issue Street Football Festival - Circular Quay


Date to be confirmed


The festival is Australia's most significant community sporting event, which aims to celebrate diversity and showcase the power of football to unite the community and improve lives.

The fifth annual event will run from 15 - 20 January 2015, bringing together hundreds of participants from all walks of life.

The festival will include competitions for corporate and government agency teams, juniors and homeless and disadvantaged players from our Community Street Soccer Program.

More than 1000 participants took part in 300 matches at the 2014 Street Football Festival, and they are hoping to make the 2015 event even bigger.

The Corporate Cup is one of the highlights of the festival, providing an opportunity for Corporate Australia to do battle away from the boardroom while raising funds for the Community Street Soccer Program. Past teams have included NAB, Westpac, Perpetual, SBS, Freehills and Nike. Corporate registrations are now open.
