Women’s football in New Zealand is on the rise, with continued growth year on year.

However, nationally participation numbers still lag behind other women’s sports in New Zealand and it is clear that the female game requires a different approach in order to realise the true potential of the sport.

To continue to build on the growth in the female game NZ has experienced so far, we need to grow the depth in the women’s game through increasing the avenues for young girls to play football.

Our new approach will focus on reducing the barriers to involvement by offering girls-only junior football and provision during the summer months to attract new girls to the game.
