Our new game plan
Football in New Zealand is perfectly placed to capitalise on some golden opportunities.
With international success, a higher profile and greater financial stability, we now have the chance to implement a national development structure to benefit participants at all levels. It involves everyone in the game working together, which is why it’s called the Whole of Football Plan (WOFP).
This master plan aligns all our development programmes to provide a unified pathway into the game and deliver a consistent experience to all participants. It’s not just about players – it also involves the ongoing development of coaches, referees and administrators.

Whole of Football (WOF) Plan update – Federation Districts and Clubs
By Mike Coggan
You will probably have seen recent advertisements for Football Development Officers (FDO’s). Mainland Football is seeking three FDO’s to be based in Christchurch, one to be based in Nelson and a minimum half time position to be based in Marlborough. Mainland Football will employ the services of a part time FDO on the West Coast who will have support of the three Christchurch FDO’s. We will also contract the services of Mid Canterbury FDO to meet the requirements of the WOF plan in its region.
Each FDO across the Federation (other than Mid Canterbury) will be directly employed by Mainland Football and each will have specific responsibilities designed to meet the expectant outcomes of the WOF plan. Each of the seven FDO’s across the Federation will report directly to the Federation Development Manager. These FDO positions will be filled by mid December with national training of staff commencing in mid January.
