Only two weeks until the start of the 42nd ASFA Season kicks off with our annual Charity Shield fixture between Premiership winners and Premier Cup winners. This year those teams are the Patriot (2016 Premiership Champions) and Auckland Wanderers (2016 Championship and Premier Cup winners). March 26th 2017 will also witness the inaugural community plate fixture, featuring the Kiwi True Blues (2016 League 1 champions) versus Viti FC (2016 League Cup winners). The community plate fixture will kick off at 12.30, and act as a curtain raiser for the charity shield fixture, due to kick off at 3pm. Both games will be played at Parrs Park, the home of Oratia Utd. The charities to which the teams wish to donate is still to be confirmed.
