Ford National Hockey Championship
Following the cancellation of our 2020 Representative Tournaments due to the ongoing effects of Covid-19 Hockey New Zealand is delighted to welcome into our National Calendar the Ford National Hockey Championship.
The Ford National Hockey Championship is an Association based event that will see the pinnacle of our Association based players put their hands up to be crowned the best performing Association at each level. The Ford National Hockey Championship will ignite the rivalries of old and new as teams go head-to-head in a weeklong competition played from November 14-20 in Tauranga (a change from the original September 12-18 date due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak).
The competition will see a tiered approach taken across the men’s and women’s competition with two tiers in each competition. These tiers will allow Associations to have like for like competition but also strive for promotion with promotion/relegation occurring between the tiers.
