  • National Provincial Championship (NPC, 1976–2005; professional from 1996)
    • Replaced by Air New Zealand Cup, now ITM Cup, and Heartland Championship in 2006. Although the NPC as a single entity is defunct, its basic structure was largely revived in 2011 with the split of the ITM Cup into two divisions. The main difference between the current format and that of the NPC era is that no promotion from the Heartland Championship to the ITM Cup is currently possible. The NPC featured promotion and/or relegation (or at least the possibility thereof) at all three levels.
