A woman has allegedly diverted more than $1.1 million from a southern NSW sports club into offshore bank accounts, prompting fraud charges.

The sports club, based along the Murray River, this week reported anomalies in its financial records to police.

The 58-year-old woman, who was the club's financial officer, was arrested at Mulwala Police Station on Tuesday and charged with 27 counts of fraud.

She allegedly transferred more than $1.1 million from the club's accounts to multiple offshore accounts between December 2020 and January 2021.

The Victorian resident has been bailed to face Corowa Local Court on February 17.

She has also been fired from her position at the club.
