Delivering community-focused street soccer programs. Let's UNITE community members through the vehicle of football.

What is United through Football?

United is focussed on serving the needs and interests of young West Australians who face barriers to participation in organised clubs and competition formats of the game. It places an emphasis on capacity building, strengthening pro-social relationships, community and cultural connections and life skills. The free program is funded by the Federal Government’s Department of Home Affairs Safer Communities Grant and is delivered in partnership with Football West, the governing body for football in Western Australia.
