The final of football's Chatham Cup will be an all Central League affair after Wairarapa United and Napier City Rovers won hard fought semi finals.

Rovers came from behind to beat the Dunedin side Caversham 2-1 in Napier to reach their sixth Cup final while Wairarapa upset Bay Olympic 1-0 in Auckland to reach the final for the first time.

Wairarapa's win also ensures that the final will be played outside Auckland for the first time since 2002.

A decision on the venue for August 27 or 28 match will be made this week.
