How we prioritise sports field applications

​How we allocate priority

We have a priority application and allocation system. This helps us decide which applications to process first, or who should have first use of our sports fields.

There are two seasons per year: summer and winter.

We do not usually accept applications outside the upcoming season.

Our priorities:

Priority one: Projects, renovations and events

  • Upgrading, renovating, repairing, and setting up our sports fields
  • International events and tournaments
  • National events and tournaments
  • Regional events and tournaments of significance to Auckland, e.g. Christmas in the Park, local board funded events, Music and Movies in Parks, etc.

Priority two: Seasonal competition and training

  • Regional Sporting Organisations and affiliated clubs for seasonal competition tournaments and finals
  • Community sports clubs
  • Seasonal training and competition games
  • Tournaments
  • Development, sports academies and elite programmes for players
  • Pre-season games (where possible).

Priority three: Community tournaments, schools, and churches

  • School and church competition games
  • Community, school, and church events and tournaments.

Priority four: Casual users

Casual bookings open after we have allocated and resolved all seasonal bookings.

  • Casual community booking
  • International tournaments training
  • Corporate, commercial and private users.
