How Auckland footballers will enjoy better pitches and facilities this year

Thousands of footballers will benefit in the 2024 season from the upgrading of pitches and facilities ahead of last year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.

More than NZ$18 million was invested in upgrades of pitches, lighting, clubroom facilities and changing rooms at 11 training venues across the Auckland region.

The funding for the training venue upgrades came from a variety of sources, including Auckland Council, central Government and contributions from local clubs.

The investment into nine community parks and two stadiums (North Harbour Stadium and Waitākere Stadium) will leave a strong legacy for grassroots sport in Auckland, and in 2024, footballers get the full-year benefit.

Tātaki Auckland Unlimited have compiled a summary of all the upgrades in a website presentation, that includes a video review of all the grounds and facilities.
