The NSWAFUA is the representative body of umpires who officiate in the Australian Football League, Sydney (“AFL Sydney”, formerly the “Sydney AFL”). Our incorporated name is the New South Wales Australian Football Umpires’ Association Incorporated, or the “NSWAFUA”.

Matches are held across the Greater Sydney area, from Pennant Hills in the north, to Richmond & Penrith in the west, and to Camden & Wollongong in the south. Appointments in these State League games may lead to higher opportunities, including representative football, the NAB National Championships, the NEAFL competition and ultimately the AFL.

The Association is proud to have two Boundary Umpires, one Goal Umpire and two rookie-listed Field Umpires as representatives on the AFL list, as well as a strong representation of members across all three disciplines umpiring in the NEAFL competition.

Along with fostering fellowship and community within the AFL Sydney Umpiring Group, the Association represents all umpires at the AFL NSW/ACT Commission. We provide support and assistance to our Members through our extensive list of services, events and programs.

Our headquarters are co-located with the AFL Sydney Umpiring Group at North Sydney Oval, North Sydney. We train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm from February to September. A satellite training session is also run at Blacktown Olympic Park on Tuesday evenings. All welcome.
