“I think we can expect some very strong applications. In many ways, the Foundation is long overdue and I think people who are passionate about the future of football in New Zealand will see the opportunity to make a difference.”
Mr Stewart said the Foundation had deliberately focussed of broad goals rather than specifics in outlining its criteria for applicants. “We want to encourage people to think broadly about ways to enhance the sport in this country.”
Every team needs supporters. At the New Zealand Football Foundation we are so grateful for our partners who believe in Football For Good just as much as we do. They know the power of sport to make real change in society and they are committed to helping us do the māhi to support our communities. The generosity of our partners is crucial to enable us to support so many worthy projects.
