ASB Chatham Cup 2015

Will this be the year your club or team earns a storied place in New Zealand Football history? Entries are now open for the 2015 ASB Chatham Cup competition.

Steeped in history and tradition, the ASB Chatham Cup is one of New Zealand sport’s oldest and most coveted trophies and has been contested annually since 1923 by over 120 affiliated NZ Football clubs, schools and other teams; all vying for the right to be named ASB Chatham Cup champions.

First contested in 1923, the cup was gifted to the then New Zealand Football Association (NZFA) in 1922 by the crew of the British naval vessel HMS Chatham as a token of appreciation for the hospitality they had encountered on a visit to New Zealand.

The 2015 ASB Chatham Cup is the 88th running of the competition and University-Mt Wellington are the most successful club in the competition’s history; having won the trophy a record seven times.

Last year, Cashmere Technical became the eighth club to win back-to-back titles, taking a 2-1 victory over five-time winners Central United in a tense final in Auckland.
