Rivalry over the ditch on show at the Opens Trans Tasman Touch Football Test Series

10 April 2014

Australian and New Zealand rivalry will heat up on the field for the 2014 Open Trans Tasman Touch Football Test Series at Mudgee’s Glen Willow Regional Sporting Complex over the ANZAC Day long weekend, 25-27 April.

The Australian teams will be looking to win back the prestigious Trans Tasman Trophy following their loss to New Zealand in Auckland at the 2013 Super Trans Tasman Series. New Zealand claimed the series two divisions to one; Australia won the Women’s Open division 3-0, while the Kiwis were victors in the Men’s and Mixed divisions 2-1.

Australia won 3-0 series last time the teams played in Mudgee at the 2012 Trans Tasman Series. The 2014 Trans Tasman Test Series will be the last time the two sides will meet before the 2015 Federation of International Touch (FIT) World Cup at Coffs Harbour in April and May.

Book your Mudgee accommodation and take in all this charming historic town has to offer. Visit a cellar door and sample some of Mudgee’s award-winning wines, or taste great local produce in one of the area’s many superb restaurants. Stunning canyon views of the Capertee Valley can be seen from the nearby town of Glen Davis, or look up towards the stars from the Mudgee Observatory.

Whether you wear green and gold or don all black, spend your ANZAC Day long weekend in Mudgee amidst all the action at the Open Trans Tasman Touch Football Test Series.
