Maori Football NZ in conjunction with Papakura City FC will be hosting a Community Day event at McLennan Park on Friday 17 January.
The event starts at 11am and gives the wider community the chance to come down and meet the Maori Football NZ representative sides taking part in the 2020 Trans-Tasman Clash of the Cultures against the Australian First Nations.
Some recognised names in the New Zealand Football Landscape will be on hand with the likes of Football Fern Sarah Morton and New Zealand U-20 representative Dayna Stevens lining up for Ngā Wahine Whanapokiri (Aotearoa Maori Women).
Players from all four Maori Football teams will run several fun football activities for attendees.
Maori Football NZ Chairman Philip Pickering-Parker is pleased to be able to hold such an event, the day before the third-edition of the Trans-Tasman Clash of the Cultures.
“It is another aspect of what this Clash of the Cultures initiative is about and hopefully it will be a good event for everyone.”
Papakura City Clubrooms will be open with food and drink available from their tuck-shop.
