Desired future state of Competition Structures - see p. 20 and 21.
A League: 2 NZ teams (Wngtn Phoenix plus another Auckland based team, each having developmental teams playing in the ASB).
Whether you agree with it or not there is one of the key pieces in the ASBP puzzle: NZF see the A-League as being the top of the NZ football competition pyramid.
Quite a significant point that they are including the A-League within the scope of NZ's competition structure, rather than treating it as an exception.
I agree with that. It is a pragmatic reality.
Will be a meltdown amongst some in Australia if that happens - would love that.
