Fixtures and resultsEdit

The 2014–15 season sees every team play the other both home and away. With the introduction of the Wellington Phoenix Reserves side creating an uneven number of teams, each team has two byes in the regular season. However, due to Auckland City FC's participation in the 2014 OFC President's Cup and the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup, several matches and byes have been rescheduled.[5][6]
