Ellerslie AFC bring Saturday Night Football to the Auckland Region

As we all know, Friday night football under lights has been a massive success at clubs around the league. In particular in the NRFL, night games at Metro and MAP are very good to watch and have done wonders for those respective clubs.
Ellerslie AFC, with its new artificial field, has made a brave move to pioneer Saturday Night football in the NRFL this season . This allows our hugely successful Reserves/First Team programme to play on the same night, which as a club, we feel is vital.

It’s not just the NRFL teams who will be experiencing night games at “The Ave” in 2013. All of the club’s senior teams will be given the opportunity to try either a Friday or Saturday night game and we will work with the teams who wish to have a go to make it happen.

The club sees that with the implementation of Stage 1 of our facilities strategy, we now have a chance to build a club feeling back at Michaels Ave, with Night football being one part of that vision.

So if you are keen to come down and support the club, and its flagship teams at 6pm on Saturday Nights, then stay tuned as the draw will be out soon.

For more information, please contact the Senior Chairman, Tim Adams or 027 434 3183.
