4NCL Rules 2021 - 22

Post by Ian Thompson » Mon Sep 13, 2021 11:54 pm

Rules have been published.

Contrary to what the 4NCL suggested the rules might be some time ago, Division 3 teams will have something to play for other than avoiding relegation. The winner of each of Divisions 3 North, Central and South gets promoted to Division 2. Against that, worst case, all Division 3 teams other than the winner and runner up in the affected section would be relegated to Division 4 for the 2022 - 23 season if every relegated Division 2 team went down to the same Division 3 section.

In practice, there should be plenty of "promotion" spots available in Div 3 North & Central, and I would guess somewhere around 6 or 7 in Div 3 South.

The board order rule has increased to 100 points.

*Edit* Each Div 1 or 2 team that fails to enter this season will be one less team relegated and therefore one more promotion place in a Div 3 League also.
