The Mainland Premier League (MPL) is one of the winter football leagues from New Zealand. With seven teams from Christchurch and one from Nelson, MPL is the strongest football league in the country’s South Island.
This league is dominated by Cashmere Technical – a team that was formed in early 2012 from the merger of two local teams, Cashmere Wanderers and Woolston Technical – which won the league six times between 2013 and 2019. Despite having already clinched 2020 season’s title, the team coached by Deane Hutchinson still has something to fight for as they are one match away from finishing the current league season unbeaten.
With nineteen wins and a draw in twenty matches, Cashmere Technical’s last meeting of 2020 MPL season will be an interesting challenge against Nomads United AFC that are currently in the third position in the league. You can check the current MPL standings by clicking here.
