By 5pm on Saturday, either Central United or Papatoetoe will have taken the NRF Men’s Championship title.
The title race has come down to 90 minutes of football for the two clubs as they play their final fixtures for 2022.
The clubs have been neck and neck since shaking off other challengers and the calculations on their day of reckoning are:
- Central win the Championship on Saturday if they beat sixth-placed Ranui Swanson.
- If Central and Ranui Swanson draw, Papatoetoe can take the title if they beat third-placed Papakura City.
- If Central and Papatoetoe draw, Central win the title.
- If Central lose and Papatoetoe draw with Papakura, the title would go to Papatoetoe on goal difference.
