NZF Youth Futsal

NZF Youth Futsal Championship 2023

East Coast Bays AFC in collaboration with Northern Regional Football is delivering New Zealand Football's Youth Futsal Championship.  The national contest is scheduled to take place in Wellington from December 14th to 17th, spanning four days.

This event stands as the premier youth futsal spectacle in New Zealand, providing a platform for the finest futsal talents from the region to compete against teams from all over the country.

ECBAFC will be entering girls' and boys' teams for the age grades below:

          U15 (2009 & 2008)
          U17 (2007 & 2006)
          U19 (2005 & 2004)


In 2022 the cost to participate was $950 for training and tournament fees, our aim is to keep costs as low as possible for players. We are actively seeking sponsorship and funding to lower the family investment; further details will be made available in October. We are aiming for a player cost between $500 and $950. This will cover all accommodation/travel to Wellington. 

Financial Support Fund 

The Physical Activity and Wellbeing Fund is available to families of female players who may require additional financial assistance. East Coast Bays AFC is offering an equivalent fund to families of male players. We don't want costs to hinder an opportunity for a player to take part in this tournament, please contact me should you have an interest in applying,
