While it is more woven into the fabric of overseas societies, football has a rich tradition in New Zealand and the Waikato. The exhibition explores this heritage with reference to the personalities and clubs that have shaped the local scene. Historical objects, memorabilia, photographs, and interviews collected in this exhibition document and celebrate football at a regional, national and global level.

Visitors will learn about the distant origins of ‘The Beautiful Game’, its international evolution and the impact of the sport on Aotearoa and the Waikato. A highlight is the Waikato Football Heroes section, which honours some of the players, coaches and administrators who have contributed to the development of the game in the region. Interactive elements for children include a foosball table and a one-on-one soccer court.
