Masters Selection Information

Hockey New Zealand has made the difficult decision not to send teams to the various Masters World Cup events in 2022. This decision comes following widespread discussions with the Masters Advisory Group and potential team coaches while also reflecting the low levels of interest received from the recent New Zealand selection EOI due to the current uncertainty around Covid-19 travel requirements.
While it is disappointing not to be sending teams, the health and safety of our Masters Community is our prime concern. Hockey New Zealand will now explore alternative playing options for the international player group this year and look forward to building competitive teams for the 2023 Trans Tasman Challenge.
