Overview

See the Brochure here

The Golden Oldies Football Festival being staged as part of the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018 has been designed for over-35s to follow the lead of other partner sports and provide opportunities to play the world game at holiday destinations around the world.

The Festival is open to players aged 35+ and the emphasis is firmly on 'Fun, Friendship and Fraternity'. As well as participants, family members are invited to attend the week-long Festival in one of New Zealand's sporting meccas and to partake not only in the action but also in the social activities that are part and parcel of Golden Oldies sports. Teams from around New Zealand and from overseas are expected to take the chance to play in what will be a unique Festival.

Some players might like to show they still savour the competitive side of the game but there will be provision for the more 'social' categories for those participants whose joints creak a little more than they might enjoy. There are no scores published and you won't find records of previous Festivals anywhere, apart from the novelty prizes handed out at the grand finale dinners that are always a highlight of Festivals.

Christchurch is superbly equipped with football venues to support the Festival. Competition doesn't take place every day and a highlight of the week is the picnic day involving all participants and partners in the middle of the week at a mystery location.

Golden Oldies Festivals across the various sports have been held in locations all around the world and have been responsible for many lasting friendships being forged and it is not unusual for people to make their holiday treks as part of the Golden Oldies activities. And the special nature of the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018 makes it an occasion not to be missed.
