Played by over 250 million players in over 200 countries, football is the world's most popular sport. A game that can be played anywhere, in multiple formats, that suit everyone.

Football is traditionally played across the winter season with 11 players on each team. However summer leagues allow for you to play your favourite sport all year round.

Here in New Zealand, we aspire to bring all New Zealanders together through the simplicity of football. Providing enjoyment, inclusivity, positive experiences, and a safe environment across every touchpoint in the game.

What is Good Sports?

​​​​​​​Good Sports is a culture change initiative aiming to create positive sporting experiences for children by educating and supporting the key adult influencers in youth sport – in particular, parents.

Well aligned to Balance is Better, it recognises that supporting and educating adults is crucial to ensure Kiwi kids have the best chance of having positive sporting experiences and ultimately growing a lifelong love of sport.
Good Sports is a well-established and highly regarded initiative, that was initially designed by Aktive as a Sport NZ funded Active Communities Project and then further developed over the last three years.
