2016 Bolam Cup and CSSL Trophy Draws

The 2016 draws for the Bolam Cup and CSSL Trophy games have been made. We will need a Preliminary Round of the Bolam Cup on the 8 May to get it down to 16 teams (as there are 20 teams). The CSSL Trophy has 16 teams so no need for a preliminary round. The first named team is the home team. The draws are now available on the Fox Sports Pulse website.
The 8 May Bolam Cup Preliminary Rounds are:

  • Game A: Combine Brothers v Templeton FC
  • Game B: Universities v Alvarados
  • Game C: Coastal Spirit Rovers A v Team Lhotshampa
  • Game D: Sunnyside B v Christchurch Sangam

Keep it [+]

Mainland Football and the CSSL would like to present you the Keep it Positive campaign.

  • We all love the game of football. Players, coaches, parents, spectators and officials all want and deserve a positive experience each time they take the field. Sadly Mainland Football currently deal with far too many misconduct reports, incident reports and general complaints. To ensure football maintains a high level of integrity we must ensure that everyone involved plays their part. Players, coaches, parents, spectators and officials each have a responsibility and duty of care to act appropriately and collectively to enhance our local football community.
  • With this campaign we would like to make everyone aware that:
    • We all need to understand what behaviours are acceptable and unacceptable, on and off the field.
    • We all have a role to play in keeping it positive on and off the field.
    • We all want to decrease the number of incidents of abuse and assaults on and off the field and retain our beautiful game.
    • We all deserve a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone to play in.
