Watch This Space

The ASFA is actively exploring all the different avenues available to ensure that our already shortened 2020 season is able to continue as soon as possible and it is our intention to try and schedule as many league fixtures as possible into the time period available to us once the government’s restrictions on community sport have been removed.

We are equally keen and committed to try and ensure that there is an ASFA Finals Day for us all to enjoy sometime in October, featuring games involving the winners of the twelve semi-finals currently scheduled to take place in September.

We thank those who have offered to play some fixtures on a Saturday or under floodlights during the week but also appreciate and accept that this is not a feasible option for some of our teams.

Updates will be posted on this site and on our Facebook page. Until then, stay safe, stay healthy, stay strong!

A total of 88 goals scored/conceded, 40 goals scored by those playing at home (48 goals scored by those playing away). 4 clean sheets and only one games in which there were more than ten goals scored (AKFC vs EZ Eagles)

All three Premiership fixtures were won by the away teams, with the host scoring 3 times and the guests scoring 14 times. 2019 Champions HNK were beaten 6-0 by 2019 Runners-up AFC Bohemian Celtics, while Inter came out on top of their local derby fixture against Indy with a 3-2 away win.

The Match of the day was played out on Rosedale Park 2, between Old Fellas and West Auckland United. Congratulations to everyone associated with West Auckland United, the winners of the first-ever ASFA Society Plate fixture. They won the silverware following a hard-earned 3-1 away win over Old Fellas, the 2019 Master league 1 winners. The visitors were 2-0 up at half time, having been made to play into a strong wind by their hosts. They added a third directly from a corner midway through the second half, whilst Old Fellas scored a consolation goal in injury time, having had another goal (harshly) ruled out for a foul on the West Auckland goalkeeper only moments earlier. West Auckland’s chosen charity was Starship Hospital and they were quick to dedicate the win to their former Secretary Elvin Rams, who is recovering from three weeks spent in a coma. Get well soon Elvin!

West Auckland United, Minutes before kick off.

Week 2 – Postponed!

All games were postponed following the closure of all grounds.

I know that this came as a major disappointment to many of our players, but the decision was made by those who want to ensure that we have football fields fit to play on in July, August and September.

Whilst Auckland needs several weeks of intense rain to help fill up those dams, let’s hope that things brighten up in time for us to play games this weekend.

Week three’s fixtures will be added this evening!

All team training should be suspended until 16 May, or two weeks prior to the start of the season. 

With the country still in Alert Level 4, the extended postponement gives the football community new guidance on when NZF aims to resume play, providing it’s safe to do so.

•    Community futsal including junior, youth, senior and social competitions – start postponed until at least 30 May
