Early Bird Registration Benefit

The Club urges all intending players to REGISTER EARLY to assist the club in organising team & player numbers. In some circumstances, our ability to enter teams in specific Auckland Football Federation grades is limited. The sooner all team entry requests are received & have all individual players registered, the sooner the club can confirm the availability of positions.

Early bird registrations close on Thursday 15th March 2019 for Senior Players. All registrations paid on or before that date qualify for an Early Bird Discount of $55.00.


Online Merchandise Purchases

Teams are issued with a set of playing shirts, including a goal keeper's shirt.  All items remain the property of the Club & MUST be returned at the end of the season or earlier if a player leaves the Club.  The Club reserves the right to seek compensation & mark a player's national record with a red flag for any club property that is damaged or not returned.


Players will need to provide their own items as listed below:

  • Football boots (NO metal sprigs to be used on artificial turf)
  • Shin pads (players without shin pads will not be permitted to play)
  • Black shorts
  • Black Football socks

It is preferred that players use guard stays instead of electrical tape on their socks.

Pre Season Training

Training for the club's other teams (community teams) will be decided upon by each team's manager in conjunction with club administration.

If you are new to the club and don't have a team we have a number of "Open Trainings" organised - which is basically a chance for all the new players at the club to come down and have a kick around and meet some of the managers/coaches of the clubs teams who are looking for players - from there we have a great record of placing people in teams!

Men's Open Trainings: NEW SESSION - Sunday 17th March @ 4pm - Michaels Ave Reserve turf.

Women's Open Trainings: 3rd March @ 3pm & 10th March @ 3pm - Michaels Ave Reserve turf.

Financial Support

In common with most community based sporting organisations, the demand for & desire to, improve services to our members is often constrained by funding shortfalls. There is continual pressure to maintain an appropriate balance between reasonable subscriptions & fees & providing more & improved quality services for members.

We urge all members to financially support these initiatives by:
  • Paying subscriptions in full & on time
  • Adding a donation at registration time if able
  • Joining the 100 Club - Contact Us to discuss
  • Becoming a Club Sponsor & partnering with Ellerslie AFC - Contact Us to discuss
