AUCKLAND, New Zealand - Northern Region Football confirm partnership with Auckland City FC, who will be delivering the age group sides at the upcoming New Zealand Football National Youth Futsal Championships in July (17-19).

The Navy Blues will deliver the Central Auckland region of age group teams across both Girls’ and Boys’ development sides (U14,U16 & U19).

Northern Region Football Chief Executive Laura Menzies says that she is excited about Auckland City FC managing the futsal age group sides on behalf of Northern Region Football in 2021.  

Clubs were invited to bid for the opportunity to manage teams on behalf of Northern Region Football for the 2021 event.

“It’s exciting to see the passion and hard work that Auckland City FC have created in delivering Futsal in our region” Menzies said.

“It’s a pilot this year, which is in line with Northern Region Football’s philosophy of empowering clubs to take a stronger role in managing teams at national events”

Auckland City FC Futsal Director, Dylan Manickum says the partnership is a great opportunity to help grow and develop futsal within our region.

“Auckland City FC are in a unique position as we have already overseen a successful men’s SuperLeague campaign last season, winning the competition in our debut year” Manickum said.

“It is a brilliant opportunity for ACFC to work with Northern Region Football to continue to develop futsal within the region. We’re aiming to build a clear pathway for aspiring futsal players from U14s all the way to the Super League”
