A brief tribute to the Ultras of Auckland

The dictionary definition of an ultra is an ‘extremist’. The more football oriented definition would be a ‘devoted fan’. There are only three hard and fast rules: Attend every game of your chosen club, stand for the duration and never stop singing.

What they lack in numbers, the Ultras of Auckland City FC more than make up for in devotion to their cause. I salute them.

    1. Indeed. I hope Canterbury can find a way to win the NZFC final though. City are already in the O-League and it would be nice for a non Auckland team to join them for a change.

      Love your blog by the way!

      1. Thanks! Its good to see other people who care and know about football in Oceania. I agree, Waitakere and Auckland seem to dominate the league every season. Have Tahiti’s AS Tefana played their last Champions League group game yet? I think they’ll play Auckland in the final if they win it.

  1. Tefana play Ba on the 15th. Yeah, if they win that they are in the final. Would be a great game to watch if anyone rich out there wants to shout me a trip to Fiji so I can cover it! ;-p

    EDIT: Actually, scratch that, it has been moved to Auckland. Cool! Only bummer is it clashes with both the NZFC Semi Final and the Warriors.
