Is this about being first (to amalgamate, in Auckland)?

Not at all, there have been a large number of sporting club mergers occurring throughout Auckland and New Zealand as clubs look to get economies of scale and do more for their communities.

Specifically in Auckland there have been several large scale amalgamations of football Clubs already (Auckland United being one well known example). We are the “first mover’s” in our general North and West Auckland area – but far from leaders. This is about creating a sustainable future, not being up with the latest fashions.
