Club Management

Clubs are the lifeblood of football in the Auckland Football region. For most of us, club football is our first and most influential experience of the game we love. Vibrant and supportive clubs, fuelled by the passion and commitment of volunteers, deliver social and competitive football opportunities for players, coaches and referees of all ages.

For some, that experience at club level is a launch-pad to elite football and for others it is simply a way to keep fit, have fun and belong to a community of like minded people.

Below are a wide range of helpful resources for your Club and member to help with the day-to-day management

  • Regional Sport Trusts
    We work with three Regional Sports Trusts in the Auckland Football region. Learn more about how they can help your Club:

  • Quality Club Mark
    To help New Zealand clubs perform at their peak, New Zealand Football has created the Quality Club Mark. This is a national partnership with our seven federations as well as 17 Regional Sports Trusts. It aims to promote continuous improvement in the way football is delivered and support clubs as they adopt standards of best practice.
  • Volunteer Management
    Volunteers are the lifeblood of grassroots football and any football club.  Volunteerism builds capacity, engages the community and can empower people. Check out some useful tips about Recruiting, Retaining and Recognising your volunteers.
