Waikato footballers can play on the portable futsal-sized pitch being used to promote this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The pitch — known as the Unity Pitch — has been taken to Hamilton for four days in mid-February, providing opportunities for junior, youth and senior players to have some fun (as well as spectators).
