In the lead up to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the New Zealand host cities wanted 500 photos of the history of women’s football. Unfortunately there are barely any photos! Alida Shanks is on a mission to connect with people who have been involved in women’s football in New Zealand. She is looking for stories and photos of those who played, coached or refereed women’s football, or were involved in the administration running women’s football from the 1900s through to today. In particular, she’d love to talk with anyone who was involved in the national and regional women’s football associations that started in the 1970s until they were dissolved in 2000.
