Hawke's Bay United have emphatically booked the fourth and final berth in the national domestic soccer league.

Needing a draw against Hamilton Wanderers to advance to this weekend's semi-finals, they thumped the visitors 4-0 in Napier on Sunday.

It sets up a daunting semi-final on Saturday away to top qualifiers and seven-time champions Auckland City FC.

The other semi-final pits defending champions Team Wellington against third-ranked Waitakere United in the capital on Sunday.

Auckland City FC finished level on 36 points with Team Wellington after 18 rounds.

The Aucklanders topped qualifying courtesy of a goal differential which was superior by one goal.
