Football Australia has revised the commencement of the eagerly anticipated NST to 2025 in a media statement released today.

After initially indicating March 2024 as the starting date back in July, Football Australia says the updated schedule will facilitate the finalisation of state competition structures and guarantees all stakeholders the necessary time to make proper preparations.

“Football Australia is working in partnership with selected clubs to finalise the essential participation documentation and other necessary requirements for the impending NST competition,” the FA statement read.

“[The change] grants all stakeholders sufficient time to finalise all logistical, regulatory, and operational aspects to guarantee a successful inauguration of the competition.”
