Online registrations are open for junior and senior players wanting to play football for Cambridge FC this year.
Here’s your guide to registration:
How to register
Please have your credit card ready to make your online payment for subscription fees via NZ Football’s MyCOMET system.
Those registering juniors should make sure they have the correct names and birthdates for children.
Our subscription fees for 2020 are:
Seniors (men and women): $295
Tertiary and secondary school students playing senior football: $180
Junior grades 4-6: $79
Junior grades 7-15: $125
Junior and Youth Sunday Federation Grades (U-12 and U-14): $150
We’re recruiting for these teams and will advise when registrations open.
Please note: our club has increased its subscriptions for 2020 to help offset increased costs of affiliation to WaiBOP Football and NZ Football. Our affiliation costs have risen by more than $6,000 over the past two years and while we absorbed most of this last year, our club is forced to pass on more of the additional cost this year.
If the player has never registered to play football in New Zealand before, please go to the MyCOMET log-in page and establish your MyCOMET player profile (not the parent profile) by clicking on the sign-up link at bottom of page and completing the next page(s).
Then use that information to register by clicking on the following registration button.
If you require help with logging in, or need to change your email address, please email NZ Football Registrations.
If you have been registered overseas and seek to register in New Zealand for the first time, please email Cambridge FC and we’ll help you with the process.

Please ensure you have the correct name and date of birth as this information becomes part of New Zealand Football’s official record of the player and will remain so as they progress through junior, youth and senior football.
Senior players need to be registered and have fully paid their subscriptions no later than a week before their first competition games to ensure eligibility to play in opening rounds of competitions.
Due to delays forced by COVID-19, we are keeping registrations open as late as possible for junior and youth teams but please check this website for updates on the targeted dates to start the season. If registrations are made too late, you may miss out on allocation to a team.
How juniors will be placed into appropriate teams
The club will hold a series of grading days to allocate players to the teams most appropriate for their season (only for players born 2011 and older.
These are for Saturday teams that play home and away in WaiBOP-graded competitions.
For 9th-14th grade boys and U-10, U-12 and U-14 grade girls, grading sessions were held on the afternoons of Sunday March 8, 2020, and Sunday March 15, 2020.
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 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 having a coaching assessment for one of the top teams you are agreeing to this policy and accept that any decision made by the club is final.
