National Indigenous Football Championships

Southern Branch is delighted that the National Indigenous Football Championships are coming to the Home of Football in the Shoalhaven in November 2016

The NIFC committee is proud to announce that Brian Brown (a local footballing Iegend) will participate in the Johnny Warren Football Foundation Celebrity Match this November, at Nowra.

Brian credentials speak for themselves. Representing Australia in two sporting codes and playing for Wollongong United in the then NSL State Cup. Brian was one of the fastest players in the Illawarra Premier League and was leading goal scorer on a number seasons.

Brian also captained the Australian Indigenous Futsalroos between 1987 - 1996 and won player of match on a number of occasions. He played over 30 internationals and competed at 15 national championships winning at least 5 national titles.

Brian speed, vision and determination was always a big part of his game, representing NSW at State of Origin Touch Football level and the Australian Men's Touch Football Team touring South Africa, England and Wales.

Brian's sporting achievements have never been recognised and it was an easy decision to showcase him in this year's Johnny Warren Football Foundation Celebrity Match.
