About FC TWENTY 11


FC Twenty 11 Incorporated was formed in 2011 following the merger of Avon United and Burnside FC football clubs.  Based in the west of Christchurch, our aim is to provide the opportunity for male & female players of all ages to play the beautiful game more often.

The merging of our two founder clubs has provided the opportunity to share grounds & resources. Based predominantly at Avonhead Park & Burnside Park (with additional grounds at Ray Blank Park and Upper Riccarton Domain), our size means we are able to better cater for players to play at a level more suited to their ability.

Not only do we provide the opportunity for footballers to play during the traditional winter season, we run a number of extra football programmes aimed at our junior and youth players outside of the winter period and also during the school holidays. We also support our junior and youth teams to attend both local and national tournaments throughout the year.

We pride ourselves on being the friendly club, passionately driven by our large number of coaches, managers and volunteers, we are proud to be able to provide the opportunity for players of all ages and ability to play the beautiful game.
