fees & policies

Special Rate for 18 – 29 Year Old’s’

We have a significantly reduced rate for our 18-29-year-old players. The $160 fee represents an almost 50% discount and must be paid before April 1st. To obtain this, please register as a “Young Senior” & pay before the 1st April.


Eastern Suburbs is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers. The membership subscription fees are to cover charges imposed on us by Auckland Football Federation and New Zealand Football, as well as the operating costs of the club.


Senior subscription fees for Winter Players are charged on a per player basis. Fees are $265 if paid before April  1st, or to $285 after that date. All fees must be paid prior to the season starting, as the club must pay Senior Team Fees to AFF at that time.


Your understanding and cooperation is gratefully appreciated. The club has a firm policy of No Pay, No Play.


The ESAFC Board, at their discretion, will consider individual cases of hardship with respect to fee charges. This consideration will remain confidential and be decided on a case-by-case basis.


No refunds will be given after 1st May.


player fines - red & yellow cards

AFF charge monetary fines for yellow cards, red cards, and late game cards throughout the season. Please note that your subscription fee does not cover fines.


The fine must be paid by the player or team responsible. Any player or team receiving a fine will be invoiced by the club for the fine. The club will not pay fines.
