Become a Supporter

The Tauranga Blue Rovers Football Club is a non-profit sports club established in 1971 that serves the Greerton, Oropi, Pyes Pa, Lakes, Tauriko and Central Tauranga communities. Our vision is Football for Everyone. We offer a variety of football programmes so that any person, regardless of their background or ability, can experience "the beautiful game" without having to leave their local community. This is reflected in the gender makeup of our committee, diversity of our members, and our programmes which cater for the beginning player, the casual player, the social player, the aspirational player, the "played in my youth" player, the disabled player, and the new to Aotearoa New Zealand player.

You can pitch in and support the club in a number of ways including:

Volunteering
