Past champions of Waiheke’s Super Summer Series football tournament have celebrated in style.

After what was a terribly interrupted and abbreviated 2020 campaign for almost all Waiheke’s football teams, the start of 2021 promises to kick off in style.

Onetangi Sports Park will host around 60 teams from throughout the region, all vying to be crowned Waiheke’s Super Summer Series champions. This will be Waiheke’s 10th annual event, which is organised by Football Fix and will feature divisions for men, men over 35 and mixed teams.
