The first round of the Chatham Cup is scheduled to be played over the weekend of May 12th and 13th, and the ASFA will be represented by four teams, two from the Premiership and two from the Championship. To accommodate this, the first round of the ASFA Cup competitions have been moved back a week, and will now take place on Sunday May 20th.
Premiership Leaders Internationale travel over the Auckland Harbour Bridge to play the ex-All White Clive Campbell coached NRFL 1st Division side Forest Hill-Milford at Becroft Park, whilst the team that currently sits directly below them in second (albeit only on goal difference), the Kiwi True Blues, host NRFL 1st Division Tauranga City.
HNK Auckland host Te Atatu’s NRFL 1st Division side Waitemata AFC, whilst the University of Auckland have the furthest to travel (275km), having been drawn against Central North Island side Taupo.
Best of luck to all four teams!!!
