Best Answer
Soccer in NZ is a minority sport, after Rugby, cricket, netball, fishing...

There are 500 football clubs in NZ, with 8 provincial teams in the only semi-professional league - the NZ Football Championship.

NZ has one team in the Australian A-League - the Wellington Phoenix - which are the only fully-professional team in NZ.

Soccer is the second most popular sport at secondary school with boys, with girls it represents only 6% of sport.

The estimate is that around 80,000 people of all ages and sexes play soccer, out of a population of around 4.2M
