HUNGERBALL New Zealand and The Sir Ray Avery Foundation have signed a partnership agreement to promote HUNGERBALL Games and Amigo Bars in schools throughout New Zealand and Internationally.
“Andu used his health psychology background to develop a fun, low impact mobile sports arena to encourage kids to play football, hockey and other games in a team environment and this was a perfect opportunity to combine the two key ingredients of, good nutrition and exercise, to grow healthy active New Zealand kids.
The key messages we are getting from schools across New Zealand is that kids learn better if they have good nutrition combined with regular physical exercise.
What excites me about Hungerball is that they have developed a body ball game (aka Endgame) which is very intense and gives a huge cardio workout.
It’s so popular it’s replacing soccer because it uses all body parts.
HUNGERBALL is revolutionising the way that kids exercise and amigo bars are the future of good nutrition so our partnership is a perfect marriage.
Amigo bars are New Zealand’s first five star oat bars supplemented with all the amino acids ,vitamins and minerals required for healthy physiological and brain development.
They provide instant energy and allow kids to perform at peak performance under the HUNGERBALL Fuelled by Amigo partnership.”
— SIR RAY AVERY
The Sir Ray Avery Foundation will donate free amigo bars to kids in need at specific Hungerball events.
“Sir Ray’s Amigo 5 star health rated bars are both nutritious and tasty being developed with direct input from the kids. Partnering up makes perfect sense for us at HUNGERBALL and will facilitate the delivery of a holistic combo of healthy nutrition and enjoyable physical activity for kids of all ages and abilities in NZ and internationally.”

After hundreds of events where HUNGERBALL Soccer was enjoyed by many a thousand, in 2017 the HUNGERBALL Hockey adaptation was developed with the help of Hockey New Zealand and is already very popular.
From its inception, HUNGERBALL expanded into other parts of the world, having already been played in Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, and Venezuela. To support the development of HUNGERBALL as a global sport, in October 2016 the HUNGERBALL Soccer International Federation (HSIF) was established to govern the HUNGERBALL Soccer rules, equipment, and licensing rights for organising HUNGERBALL competitions anywhere in the world.
