Feedback sought

We are seeking feedback on some proposed changes to the format for next year's tournament:

  • The tournament will start on the weekend of 22/23 February depending upon the number of entries, possibly one week earlier for Division 1 in order to have the Final on the weekend of 21/22 March
  • Most games will be played on Sundays but we will be introducing some Saturday games as this suits some clubs better
  • Two artificial pitches will be used - Memorial Park and Maidstone Park, and two grass pitches at Petone as required
  • To allow for more pre-season flexibility the group games will include the option of three x 30 minute thirds, and five rolling subs plus a goalkeeper can be used, plus re-grading changes
  • The knockout rounds will likely revert to normal two x 45 minute halves and no rolling subs as we get closer to season start, but this will be determined later
  • The final format for each Division will be decided once we have all the entries, but all teams will have at least 4 games and some 5 games.
