Online registrations are now open for senior and most junior players wanting to play football for Cambridge FC this year.
NZ Football has introduced a new database system – called MyCOMET – for managing registrations and we thank all members and guardians of youth and junior players for their patience in waiting for the new system to go live.
How to register
Please have your credit card ready to make your online payment. Those registering juniors should make sure they have the correct birthdates for those children.
If you played last year for Cambridge or another NZ-based club, you should have received an email from NZ Football providing you with a COMET ID (username) and Password.
We are aware some people have not received this email. This may be caused by an invalid email address being used previously, or emails bouncing or being filtered to junk/spam files.
To help our club volunteers, WaiBOP Football has set up a dedicated email address to provide you with the information you need. If after checking your junk/spam folders you still can’t find your MyCOMET login details, please email WaiBOP Football Help with the following information – name of player(s) registering, dates of birth, name of current club.
Once you have your username and password, click on the following button to sign in.
Important note: Please be aware that in its terms and conditions our club reserves the right to issue refunds, in whole or part, solely at its discretion and will charge an administration fee of $10 in the event a refund is made.
Choose the relevant registration option (see guide below for junior grades) and you will then be taken to a payment page. Once payment has been completed you will receive a confirmation email.
If this does not happen, please email Cambridge Football Club.
If you are seeking a transfer from another club, registering with Cambridge FC will automatically begin the transfer process. Contact your appropriate club captain if you require more information.

The aim of Cambridge Football Club is to provide quality football opportunities for players of ALL levels and grading is the best way to ensure players are in teams with others of a similar ability; this process helps to ensure your child gets the best from their season.
We are committed to having high-level competition teams in every grade. Places in these teams are allocated on ability, and also, importantly, attitude.
If having been placed in one of these teams we feel that a player is struggling or not showing the correct attitude it may, on occasion, be necessary to move them down; equally, players may also be moved into a higher level team if it is felt that they show the required skill level. This is done for the benefit of both the individual player and their team, by trialling for one of the top teams you are agreeing to this policy and accept that any decision made by the club is final.
