Partnership opportunities with Christchurch United

Become a partner of Christchurch United

 

Christchurch United FC is the most successful club in Canterbury football history and has recently started an exciting new chapter by merging with the Christchurch Football Academy and to be based at the state-of-the-art Christchurch Football Centre in Yaldhurst.

The Christchurch Football Centre is visited by thousands of players, coaches, officials, parents and fans each months and provides terrific exposure for all companies displayed at the CFC.

The centre is also on State Highway 73 and according to NZTA statistics over five million cars travelled past the site each day in 2015, and traffic is only increasing.

Christchurch United has huge ambitions to become the best football brand in New Zealand, to provide a world-class experience for young players and develop the best talents and best young people for our community.

Our sporting goal is also ambitious – but realistic – to join and win the New Zealand national league and compete in the Oceania Champions League in the not too distant future.

CUFC also host the Christchurch International Cup and after the success of our inaugural tournament, we are confident the event will quickly become the premier youth football event in Australasia.

The Christchurch United brand is growing rapidly in New Zealand and abroad and we want to offer your company the opportunity to be part of this developing success story.
