Players on the Onerahi football field.

The main football pitch at Onerahi is receiving a complete overhaul with new irrigation, drainage and sand carpet surface.

During the project the main pitch will receive new sports lighting, so games and training can be undertaken in low light conditions and at night.

The work is part of Councils 2021 Active Recreation and Sports strategy which aspires to meet the current and future sport facility needs in the district.

What to expect

The main “Number 1” football pitch will be closed throughout the season whilst the work and new surface grows in.

Onerahi Football Club senior home games will be at various other venues throughout the 2024/2025 football season while the new field is being established. Once the work is complete, games will be returning to their main pitch.

All home junior and youth games will be unaffected, and the clubrooms will remain open.

There will be site fencing around the pitch and lighting areas.
