The inaugural Golden Oldies Football Festival will be held in the beautiful  Garden city of Christchurch, New Zealand from the 15th – 22st April, 2018. The Festival is open to teams from around the world, of all abilities – the only requirement is that players are aged over 35.

At Golden Oldies Festivals, the games are just as important as the functions and during the week teams will play eight games, meet new friends from around the world and attend both opening and closing functions (all inclusive of beverages, food, entertainment & transfers).

Why not join us and enjoy all that the Golden Oldies movement has to offer enthusiastic footballers. Bring your teammates, your friends and partners for a fun filled week of Football!
