ThereΒ are some American football leagues and teams in New Zealand, mostly made up of expatriates and locals who have developed an interest in the sport.

The New Zealand American Football Association (NZAFA) is the governing body for American football in New Zealand. It oversees various leagues and teams, including the Auckland Raiders, the Bay City Buccaneers, and the Wellington Wolves.

Despite the small size of the American football community in New Zealand, there are still many passionate fans and players who enjoy the sport. Additionally, there are opportunities for New Zealanders to play American football in the United States through scholarships and other programs.
