Intro 

The Better Football U21 League is back for the Summer 2021 season. 

This year we are opening the format up to all clubs within the Capital Football structure who are currently playing in Central League, Capital Premier, Capital 1 and 2. 

This is a u21 competition with all eligible players needing to be u21 at the 1st of September 2021. 

Three over-aged players will be allowed in the match day squad each game. Any protests around ineligible players will need to be launched before kick off.

Team sheets will need to be submitted one hour before kick-off.  

The season will run for ten weeks kicking off on the 3rd of October. The season will fit in and around other Capital/NZ Football commitments such as the Ivan England and Napier u19 tournaments. 

All games will be refereed by a team of three as well as two match crew members providing coverage of the game. 

All games are 2x40 minute halves.
