NZ Secondary School Boys' Football

It is with immense disappointment that Australian Secondary Schools Football have made the tough decision to again cancel their tour of New Zealand that had been planned for July 2022.

NZSS Football will continue to work with Australia Secondary Schools Football and other countries in an attempt to re-instate an international programme as soon as possible.

- 2022 Under 16 Representative Team

Congratulations to the following players who have been selected to represent NZSS Boys Football in games against the Australian Secondary Schools Football team who are planning to tour New Zealand in the 2022 July school holidays, COVID and border restrictions permitting.

Due to the latest COVID-19 outbreaks Australia Secondary Schools can no longer travel to New Zealand in January 2022 and holding an Auckland camp in October is looking increasingly unlikely. We have therefore decided that we will hold a camp from the 17th Jan - 19th January in Auckland (provisional dates and venue). At this camp, players will have the opportunity to play the NZ Maori team and hopefully another game. Whilst this is not perfect, it does allow players to represent NZSSBFA.

Selected players will receive direct communication advising of future plans.
