The Hawke Cup is the major competition for New Zealand Cricket's District Associations.
The competition is split into four regional Zones. Within each zone, a full round robin is played, games contested over two days. Each Zone’s winner then gets a three-day Hawke Cup Challenge against the current holders. To win the Hawke Cup, challengers must beat the holders on their home ground, either outright or on the first innings.
Bay of Plenty is the current holder and will host the opening challenge of 2017/18 after completing an unbeaten Hawke Cup season in 2016/17.
