Going into Monday’s round of Chatham Cup ties, the competition’s biggest underdogs, Sperm Whales FC, are a ‘bunch of mates who love playing together’.

The social team who play in Auckland’s Sunday leagues go into the Chatham Cup’s second round with a home tie against Lotto NRFL first division side Metro.

If the Whales — named by a co-founder who was a marine biologist — can upset Metro, it’ll be their third scalp of the competition, joining Whangarei FC and Lotto NRFL second division side Ngaruawahia United.
