So Green Island are not in the Southern League this season. Can someone in know explain how this works/worked?

They finished 3rd to bottom last season, with Selwyn United FC and FC Twenty 11 below them.

Were there playoffs? Or Did they withdraw?

I know Universities AFC won the Mainland Premier League.

Green Island decided not to enter the Southern League this season.
Unversities earnt the right to seek entry into the Southern League after winning the play-off series. They defeated FC Nelson (the winner of the Nelson Bays Premier League) home and away and then defeated Roslyn Wakari (winner of the Southern Football League).

FC Twenty11 will retain a place in the SL for the coming season.

Christchurch United have three more pre-season games planned other than those already announced - don't know the dates but:
vs Nomads (midweek)
vs Nelson Suburbs
vs Cash Tech (last weekend before season opener)
Still deciding whether to put another game against Coastal in there in midweek too, fatigue is a factor.

I see they've made United and Tech play each other in the last round again. Played in Rd17 in 2022, Rd18 last year and Rd18 again this year. Hoping for a closer table than last season to generate some excitement.

So much for a random draw then! 

The draw will be random and then they mix the rounds to suit the league.

Happens in professional leagues all the time 🤷‍♂️

Christchurch United went down 3 - 0 to Wellington Olympic in the NZ Football Charity Cup this afternoon, with United's Matthew Brazier receiving a straight red just before normal time was up, likely to be for Violent Conduct so assume any sanctions applied (likely to be a minimum of 2 games) will be served in the SL.

Finished 2-1 to Selwyn. Very hot on the turf. 29⁰ was what my car said, so add on a few for the turf effect.
Scrappy game at times, but good to get minutes in legs in those conditions.
Kudos on the sharkhousery from Waimak leaving the aircon remote for the away changing rooms hidden, so it was a raging sauna in there 🤣

The draw is out and on Mainland's website here.  Exciting! 

A few years back we did a pick the score comp which was a bit of fun. If you wanna play again I'm keen to organise, give this post a like and we can see if we can get enough people.
