Football for Friendship
Tena koutou everyone,
We’re excited to announce that Tauranga City AFC will be representing New Zealand at the 2020 Football for Friendship eWorld Championship (eF4F) event, 27th November - 9th December.
Congratulations to Lane Ririnui, who has been selected as our player representative this year and to Van Fitzharris, who will be our young journalist. Both are very excited to be participating in this global event and we’re sure they’ll be perfect ambassadors for our club. Over the weekend, past F4F player ambassador Jonty Burggraaf met with Lane and Van to officially hand over the reins at Links Ave.
This opportunity is the result of our ongoing football partnership with Football Music Culture (AUS/NZ), Reagan Milstein Foundation (AUS), Lengo Football Academy (AUS) and Football For Friendship (RUS).
