News – McDonalds Junior Coach of the Year 2018

2018 McDonald’s Junior Football Coach of the Year initiative

As a valued member of the New Zealand Football community we invite your club to join us in celebrating our Junior Football coaches who have volunteered their time throughout the 2018 season.

Every year, over 6,000 coaches volunteer their time to help Kiwi kids “kick start” their football dreams. They spend their weekends coaching local teams and making sure children get active, develop their football skills and, most importantly, have fun.

New Zealand Football and Junior Football partner McDonalds once again are teaming up to find the ‘2018 McDonald’s Junior Coach of the Year.’

Over a four week campaign beginning June 25, New Zealand Football and McDonald’s will be asking the football community to nominate their coach of the year for 2018 via an online application form –

Nominations are encouraged for positive behaviour both on and off the pitch, including supporting players positively from the touch line, introducing new players to the game and helping out in their local community.

This year we will have three prize categories

–          Regional shortlist winners (3 from each Federation)

Each to receive a coaching equipment pack to use for training and games

–          Regional winners (1 from every Federation)

Each to receive a coaches apparel pack

–          National winner (1 overall winner)

One winner to receive a 2018 Club World Cup experience for two people in Abu Dhabi valued at $10,000

With some exciting prizes up for grabs we do hope you see the value in being part of this great initiative and look to drive nominations in your footballing community.
