With a growing list of Football United schools in NSW, 2012 saw the first Inter-School Competitions contested in two divisional Gala Days: North and South. South Division was held at Fairfield High School, where the hosts were joined by teams representing James Meehan High School, Airds High School and Miller High School. The North Division was hosted by Granville Rage Soccer Club, contested by High Schools and Intensive English Centres from Granville South, Evans, Chester Hill and Holroyd.
In mid-August, sixty students from 7 different High Schools and Intensive English Centres across Sydney travelled to Information and Cultural Exchange's physical home, Switch, in Parramatta. Workshops, as part of Football United's Digital Connections program, were facilitated by leading artists, film-makers and musicians, giving students a taste of storytelling, digital technologies and idea-sharing through digital media.
