I’m thrilled to announce Xero is partnering with New Zealand Football to help support football clubs across Aotearoa, helping Kiwis balance better numbers off the field through a club support programme.
Through this long-term partnership agreement, which will run until 2026, we’re aiming to build on increased interest in the beautiful game that will no doubt be supercharged by the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ held in New Zealand and Australia.
We’re so excited to get behind our Kiwi football clubs, and particularly the football communities who power the grassroots game.
Club support programme
The New Zealand Football partnership will support football clubs across Aotearoa, helping Kiwis balance better numbers off the field through a club support programme.
Local clubs are often run by dedicated Kiwis who may not have experience in aspects of running a small business. As a result, they’re spending additional time on finances and general admin, which is time better spent managing the growth and development of a club.
Xero looks forward to introducing our technology to more football clubs across Aotearoa because we believe better numbers off the field will contribute to better numbers on the field.
The club support programme will set the benchmark for club standards nationwide, focusing on factors such as administration, leadership, financing, player development, and community engagement.
Spreading the love of the game
Xero joins NZ Football to champion community football whilst also partnering with FIFA for the home FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™”.
The club support programme is under development with Xero and New Zealand Football and will be available to all football clubs registered with New Zealand Football from April 2023.
This year is shaping up to be an incredible year for football in Aotearoa and Xero is thrilled to be a part of it. We look forward to initiating our club support programme with New Zealand Football while helping to drive success for women in football as the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ arrives in town.
