Choosing North vs South
For the North vs South event, players must choose to be affiliated with either North or South teams. Players can choose whichever they feel is most representative of them, but our default definitions are as follows.
“North” consists of New Zealand’s top 3 football federations – Northern Region Football (NRF/NFF/AFF), WaiBOP Football, and Central Football.
“South” consists of New Zealand’s bottom 3 football federations – Capital Football, Mainland Football, and Football South.
