Coastal Premier League (CPL) yesterday announced it would move straight to a final series following the end of the lockdown.
It also announced the grand final had been moved back a week to September 25.
The CPL regular season was scheduled to end on August 21.
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and floods earlier in the year, making many grounds unplayable, the season was extended until September 4.
Competition administrators had set a deadline of September 5 for all unplayed matches to occur.
The NSW Government's announcement this week that the lockdown is extended for a further two weeks meant that some matches would be abandoned.
Ten matches from the first-grade regular season were lost.
An additional five from reserve grade couldn't occur.
To conclude the season with semi-finals and a grand final in both first grade and reserve grade, competition administrators have declared four finalists.
The final four in both grades was determined after unplayed matches were recorded as one all draws, in accordance with the traditions of football and the rules of the competition.
The final four in first grade are Coffs United, Coffs Tigers, Boambee and Port United.
The final four in reserve grade are Coffs United, Northern Storm, Port Saints and Port United.
Finalists will resume team training on September 11 ahead of the semi-finals on September 18.
The grand finals in both grades will occur on September 25 at C.ex Coffs International Stadium.
In the event the lockdown continues, CPL administrators will consider playing the final series in October.
Coffs United was the Premier in both first and reserve grades, coming atop the ladders in both competitions after the regular season.
"We have a finals series with the four teams who set the pace throughout the season," Football Mid North Coast general manager Bruce Potter said.
"If we can play a final series in September or October, we will. It's a credit to all ten clubs that 96 per cent of scheduled matches were played this year. The quality has been high, the passion without question, and the standing of competition has grown.
"We would have preferred that the finals were determined on the pitch rather than on paper. We also recognise that the events beyond our control mean some teams haven't finished where they hoped. We also know that some teams have missed a shot at finding their way into the finals.
"We understand the disappointment of those disadvantaged or who missed out. These teams deserved a shot but didn't get it.
"Floods, a global pandemic and a potentially short window of opportunity to play meant we had to make the difficult decision we did."
In first grade, Kempsey Saints finished just in sixth with 24 points while Macleay Valley Rangers were eighth.
