Sports Safari is owned and operated by Mathew Roiall and Kerryn Goodyer. The store opened on 9th October 2004 on State Highway 1 in Ngaruawahia. We began as a footwear clearance store offering big named brands at affordable prices, with an emphasis on rugby league product.

Over the years, the store has changed dramatically moving away from clearance footwear and apparel, progressing more into Rugby League and Rugby official merchandise, apparel and accessories.

In October 2012, we made the move into Te Rapa, Hamilton, where we are currently situated.

With a decade of being in business, we are now an established specialist NRL Rugby League store with a huge range of rugby league merchandise, offering a great selection of footy boots and a wider range of brands in casual clothing, performance footwear and sporting equipment.

In September 2013, we joined the Sportsworld Group, enabling us to grow our business even further with the opportunity to offer Nike and Adidas footwear, apparel and licensed merchandise, ie: All Blacks, Maori All Blacks & Super Rugby official product.

Our online website and facebook page continues to be an integral part of our business today.
