Two well-known Palmerston North sports clubs are preparing to grow. Breakers Red Sox Manawatu Sports Club and Massey University Football Club are excited to announce a partnership moving into the 2022 season. This developing partnership has come from the minds of some of Palmerston North footballing communities most well-known members who identified the need to offer more for their members and the wider footballing community.
Massey has historically been a club with a lively young adult membership, drawing in players with the promise of a student culture paired with some of the best playing facilities on offer in the Manawatu. Red Sox is a club with a long-standing presence in both the junior and senior environment, with spacious, sometimes under-utilised club rooms.

Red Sox Statement:
“We are a long established, proud community club with an excellent clubroom. A partnership with Massey provides us an opportunity to increase the quality of our asset base with the first class pitch they can provide as well as an ability to collaborate with a group of like-minded people with similar goals and values to keep football alive and thriving in our community.”

Massey Statement:
“Massey has always strived to have a vibrant culture both on and off the field and historically this has been achieved with some difficulty. Our biggest hurdle has always been the lack of a clubroom to call our “home”. A partnership with Red Sox will provide this environment, to house our rapidly expanding membership. In addition to this, partnering with Red Sox creates a connection with the junior football space which is currently absent from the Massey repertoire.”

Both entities see the mutually beneficial outcomes of this partnership, and the commercial and sporting benefits this brings should be significant. Both club executives are working through the details for 2022 from an administrative perspective.
The result of this partnership will see the formation of the Red Sox-Massey Junior Football Academy. The academy will offer junior footballers the opportunity to develop their skills above and beyond the standard season, with the support of dedicated, qualified coaches. Watch this space for further details and opportunities.
