About Northern Region Football

Northern Region Football exists to serve our member clubs and help make football and futsal happen, from South Auckland to the top of the North Island. 

We work to enrich lives through football, and build capability and leadership within our game, guided by our values of enjoyment, respect, collaboration, inclusivity and ambition. 

Our overarching goal is helping more people play and love football and futsal. We achieve this through a customer centric philosophy, focused on significantly growing our registered members, and improving their football experience.  

Our strategy is summed up as: 

  • Thriving clubs 
  • Quality competitions 
  • Access for all 

NRF  is the sole legal entity for Football in Auckland and Northland, following a merger of Auckland and Northern Football Federations, and is responsible for senior, youth and junior football and futsal competitions across the region, and the Northern Region Football League (NRFL), including teams from Waikato and Bay of Plenty (WAIBOP).​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
