A Grading round and a Championship round.
This purpose of the grading round is to ensure teams of equal ability are playing against each other.
It starts with each club recommending a division for their teams for the grading round.
The grading round will last for approximately seven weeks depending on grade size.
Depending on the results of the games in the Grading Round games (i.e. if a teams wins a wins or loses a good majority of their games), they may well get moved to the next higher or lower division for the subsequent Championship Round.
For Auckland-wide AFF competitions, one week you will play at home against a visiting club team and the next week you will play away at different club somewhere else in Auckland.
