NZ Falcons return to Marvel Stadium in 2020

The New Zealand senior team will compete in the annual ANZAC clash against the AFL Academy at Marvel Stadium (formerly Etihad Stadium) in Melbourne on April 26th.


The match traditionally hosted by Wellington’s Westpac Stadium for 8 years has been relocated to the home of football for the second year running.

It is a big year for the New Zealand Falcons as they work towards their first ever win against the Australian team before entering into the 2020 AFL International Cup in July.

New Zealand’s coaching group will now assemble an initial squad that is sure to include talented athletes based in both Australia and New Zealand.

The final squad to travel to Melbourne will be announced on Monday the 13th of April.
