South Auckland Rangers A.F.C.
The club started as the Otara Rangers in 1973. In 1989 the Otara Rangers (based at Ngati Otara) merged with Clover Park United to form the club now known as “The South Auckland Rangers Association Football and Sports Club Incorporated” and stayed based at Ngati Otara until 1989.
In 1989 a move to our current location at James Watson Park was made after a promise by the Manukau City Council to provide grounds solely for football use so as to avoid any conflict with rugby league. The existing grounds at James Watson Park will be made available again for Rugby League once South Auckland Rangers Football Club moves to our new grounds at Rongomai Park.
