Don't say we didn't tell you so. The 21st annual Johnny Warren Memorial Cup will take place over the next two days in the New South Wales town of Jamberoo.
Jamberoo was former Socceroo’s legend and football pioneer, Johnny Warren’s, home-town for ten years. Warren was at the forefront of efforts to mainstream the sport in Australia during his lifetime, and the seven-a-side tournament is testament to his legacy.
Over 800 players in 78 registered teams are expected to take to the field in the two day event.
Tournament Director and Warren’s nephew, Jamie Warren, said the Football New South Wales supported event was a “humbling” experience.
“It is very humbling to see the continued growth of the Johnny Warren Memorial Cup,” he said.
“(It’s) testament to John, his contribution to the game and the high esteem in which he is still held by the football community.
“If you’re looking to see some great football, to catch up with old friends, to make some new ones or to reminisce about one of the true greats of Australian football, I encourage you to make the pilgrimage to Jamberoo, it will be well worth it.”
