Two years ago there were no women’s teams playing in Auckland. The last time there was a women’s competition in Auckland was in 2003 when the Pride Vixens were the Champions.
Two years ago there were players who wanted to get into the sport but there was no opportunity until American Football Auckland (AFA) decided to organize a competition last year.
The 2017 year began with two teams and this year the competition has doubled in size to four teams.
The teams are:
- Metro Lions.
- Papatoetoe Wildcats
- South Auckland Raiders
- Western Wolves
The competition is full contact and they are looking for more players. Some players are new to contact sport and others are using this as off season training for League or Rugby Union.
If you want to get involved then contact one of the clubs listed above through the “Find a Team” page on the NZAFF web site.
