The Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC is proudly hosting its second Female Football Gala Day during the FFA’s Female Football Week this Sunday March 4.

The day runs from 10am till 2pm and is being held at the Mullumbimby Leagues Club (25 Manns Road, Mullumbimby), to take advantage of their additional space.

Register a team of eight players or as an individual and join the fun.
