History[edit]

Football South Coast (FSC) was established in 2008 as a unification of all soccer associations and governing bodies in the area. This was the result of Football NSW desire to organise and manage all regions within its borders effectively. The merger involved nine key associations: Illawarra Football Association (IFA), Illawarra Junior Football Association (IJFA), Illawarra Amateur Football Association (IAFA), Wollongong Wolves (now South Coast Wolves), Futsal, the A-League bid team, Illawarra Women's Football Association (IWFA), the Illawarra Stingrays and the Referee's Association. These bodies have been dissolved to make way for FSC, with the exception of the Wolves and Stingrays which will operate as clubs not associations.[1]

Councils[edit]

There are five main councils of Football South Coast. They are the Men's, Women's, Junior's and Referee's and Development.[1]
