Football (soccer)


Football is one of the most popular sports in the world and is one of the sports that is undergoing a lot of growth and development in Special Olympics New Zealand.

Currently, Special Olympics New Zealand offers mixed football in 5-a-side, and 7-a-side games. We also offer futsal, an indoor version of football.

In addition to game play, there is a skills-based component offered at events and during training . Skills learned such as passing, dribbling and shooting are important for game play.

Special Olympics New Zealand is working with Football New Zealand (NZF) to further develop and strengthen its football programme.
