As one of the first nations to promote such a plan in football, the Federation’s progressive stand positions it as a leader.

“This agreement sends the right message to the men, women, boys and girls who love our sport. We are equal, and we are proud to play for a Federation who recognizes this,” says Football Ferns captain Ali Riley. “We are all out here to play our best and inspire the next generation of footballers, regardless of our gender.”

Riley will lead New Zealand into its fourth consecutive FIFA Women’s World Cup this June in France, where Football Ferns will wear kits that celebrate New Zealand’s endemic silver fern.

In Māori legend, the silver fern represents strength, resistance and power. These traits relate to the unique underside of the tree’s fronds that reflect under moonlight, creating something akin to a natural nightlight. Thus, they have been celebrated for guiding travelers.
