Te Awamutu AFC have booked buses to get club members and the local community to the stadium for all 5 games. They also have a dozen kids involved as escorts, flag bearers and ball girls, and a few adult volunteers too.
Cambridge High School FC are going to host an evening with the New Zealand v Switzerland game (July 30) on a big screen at the school with a BBQ and room decorated with FIFA bunting and posters.
Hamilton Wanderers will be supporting the FIFA Woman’s World Cup by encouraging club members to buy tickets and attend the games in person. Outside of that one of their sponsors, Smith & McKenzie, will be hosting watch parties.
Horotiu School have used digital copies of the FIFA host city posters as inspiration to create our own city/sport static images. The FIFA posters were excellent examples of how to use the elements of static images to catch the audience’s eye and get a message across. They are also hoping to attend the first Hamilton game as a school group.
Cambridge FC's women's club captain is working hard to amp up the excitement at her club. They are looking at running busses to the games, and will be volunteering at all the games/stadium in different ways, from Accreditation to VIP to Fan Festival to ball kids and flag bearing
