Founded in 1888 Roslyn Wakari is one of New Zealand's oldest football clubs. We are also one of the South Island's largest football clubs enjoying a membership of over 700 players, there is a Roslyn Wakari team, sometimes two, competing in every grade of Football South's Dunedin competitions.
Our home, Ellis Park, has three competition grounds, various pre-season training venues, five specialist floodlit training areas and an indoor gymnasium. With our focus on improving facilities we have erected new LED lighting including an extension to the field coverage for training. As part of our commitment to a full changing room upgrade, we’ve also installed new gas showers.
Our club's objective is to always promote the enjoyment of playing football across all ages and we strive for an environment where members can be their best. We have recently added legends evenings to our social calendar so as our marquee members can regale their careers.
Our strategic plan has given us further direction and our revamped club website has provided the world with further information. But perhaps the most exciting initiative has seen the brewing of our own beers, the “Late Tackle” and the “Early Tackle” which are both available from the bar.
