About Abbotsford Junior Football Club

Abbotford Junior Football Club (AJFC) is a voluntary community sporting organisation in Sydney’s Inner West, serving junior and senior football players primarily from the suburbs of Abbotsford, Chiswick, Drummoyne, Five Dock, Russell Lea and Wareemba.  

Campbell Park, at Chiswick has always been the club’s home ground. In 2010, the facilities were significantly improved, with the installation of 6 new light towers, providing excellent lighting that meets the Australian Standard for night games to all areas of Campbell Park. Training can be rotated around the ground to spread the wear & tear and maintain/improve the playing surface. 

The club’s main objective is to provide a safe and friendly environment for football (soccer) players of all ages. As the club’s name suggests, our focus is on junior football player development: a coaching director coordinates an age-based training program, ensuring that all children are taught age-appropriate skills and the club offers extended skills training for keen players. The club currently has 500 members - 350 juniors and 150 seniors. The Abbotsford Wolves represent the club in the Sydney Amateur Football League, a metropolitan-wide, elite senior mens competition. 

In 2011, AJFC welcomed girls and women to register to play in the womens football competitions on Sunday - recognition that girls and women's football continues its rapid growth to this day.
