The Auckland derby is a local football rivalry between two ASB Premiership clubs based in the Auckland Region. Auckland City FC are located within Auckland City itself while Waitakere United are from neighbouring city Waitakere City. Since November 2010, the two cities are now part of the new super city; Auckland Council and the rivalry can now be classed as a city derby. Since the creation of the New Zealand Football Championship in 2004 the two clubs have dominated the league becoming the only sides to win the Premiership and the end of season play offs. As a result of their dominance they have been annually awarded 2 places in the same group of the Oceania Champions League adding a further two derby games to the calendar.
