Only eight teams are fighting for the title in the current ISPS Handa Men’s Premiership, the national football league from New Zealand, once Southern United and Tasman United merged with Canterbury United for 2020-21.

However, the number of participants in the ISPS Handa Men’s Premiership is likely to increase again for the next seasons. After applying for a National League Club License in September, Manukau United board was informed that their application has been successful, allowing them to be part of the national league.

“A special thank you to the volunteer Manukau United board for driving this important work and to New Zealand Football for working with us through the club licensing processes and understanding the opportunities that enabling progress in our region brings to our communities and for football in Aotearoa,” stated the club on social media.

Manukau United currently play the Lotto NRFL Premier, one of the most important regional leagues in the country. They are also known for promoting diversity, as the team includes players of various nationalities and backgrounds. Oceania Football Center congratulate Manukau United for this major accomplishment.
