Taupo McCartney

This is the largest football tournament in New Zealand and a great way to end the season. Entries sell out quickly so you need to be on their mailing list to gain early bird access. The tournament is usually mid October and is located at Crown Park, Taupo.

The level of football is high and games are spread over two days. Teams should have a qualified referee although some are provided for the older grades.

Given the time of year, take shelter and sunblock. Even better, rent a marquee and BBQ.

Accomodation is always tight because it’s a popular tournament so book early!

When: Post season – Mid October

Entry fee: $350 per team

Douglas Villa

A good end of season tournament for all junior grades.
