Women’s team vying for promotion to Waikato A league

posted in: News, Women

Changes to the Waikato Women’s league competition format mean Cambridge are in the running for promotion to the Waikato A division.

With four wins from their five games so far, Cambridge sit in second place on the 13-team Waikato B table.

WaiBOP Football have decided that the top two teams in the competition after the round of games on May 27 will be promoted to the A division.

If promoted, Cambridge would then join the four bottom-placed teams from Waikato A in a six-team league, with each playing their rivals home and away in a 10-week programme, starting on June 10.

If Cambridge miss promotion after May 27, the team will join the remaining 11 teams in the B division, playing a single round of games starting on June 9.

The changes to competition format are aimed at providing teams and players with competitive football against sides of similar ability.

Meanwhile, Cambridge skip their league programme this weekend as they are playing a first round match in the Waikato Women’s Cup. They host Matamata Swifts at John Kerkhof Park on Sunday (May 20), kicking off at 11am.
