McCartney Invitational Tournament 2023 - 6-7-8 October 2023
Established in 2004, the McCartney Invitational Tournament is the largest Junior Football tournament in Australasia, organised and run by Taupo AFC in October each year. It attracts approx. 140 Junior teams from all over New Zealand and in previous years, Australia.
The tournament is a sell out each year. Teams are invited from previous participants, with any spare places after 2 weeks opening to other clubs. The tournament caters for Grades 9 through to 15, with both girls and boys teams.
Previously a 2 day tournament, covid restrictions had us move to a three day tournament, starting around 11am on Friday. This worked well, and we are moving to that format going forward.
