Progressing into 2018 Football South through the FDO team, will look to set up ‘Bootroom Hubs’ in the regions (Otago, Central Otago, South Canterbury, Southland). We would also encourage clubs, schools and club hubs etc. to look at setting up their own groups with likeminded football enthusiasts and coaches, the club based group can feed into this centralised ‘Bootroom Club’.
