If you want the chance to see how good our top women’s football is, you’ll struggle to find a better opportunity than this Sunday (May 9).
The six teams in the Women’s Lotto NRFL Premier Division are all playing in Auckland and at staggered kick-off times, enabling spectators to go to all three fixtures.

10am – Northern Rovers (2nd) v Eastern Suburbs (3rd) at McFetridge Park, Glenfield
Leave this game at the final whistle and it’ll take an estimate 28 minutes (according to Google Maps) to drive to Game 2.
1pm – Auckland United (5th) v Western Springs (1st) at Keith Hay Park, Mt Roskill
OK, you’re going to either have to leave before the final whistle – or miss a bit of Game 3 – but it’s only a 22-minute trip to get to your third and final game of an action-packed day.
3pm – Ellerslie (6th) v Hamilton Wanderers (4th) at Michael’s Ave, Ellerslie
