Inter-island semi-finals for Chatham Cup

7:08 am on 23 July 2008

The semi-finals for football's Chatham Cup on August 16-17 will be inter-island affairs with Dunedin Tech and East Coast Bays landing home advantage in today's draw.

Dunedin Tech - the only previous winners left in the 85-year-old knockout competition - will host Glenfield Rovers at the Caledonian, while East Coast Bays welcome Nelson Suburbs to Bay City Park in a clash of regional league leaders.

The final will be on September 13 at Albany's North Harbour Stadium but if the competition sees it's first all South Island final New Zealand Football Competitions Manager Glyn Taylor says they'd consider relocating the match and taking the final to the fans.
