This is an update regarding the upcoming New Zealand Falcons vs AFLNZ All Stars match scheduled for September 25th 2021.
Due to the ongoing health concerns and travel restrictions present regarding Covid-19, this campaign has been rescheduled. AFLNZ is aware it is disappointing for all involved but ensuring the health and safety of all participants is imperative for AFLNZ.
With local leagues currently facing Covid restrictions and no certainty to the alleviation of Covid levels, the lead in and preparation for players has suffered considerable disruptions.
Reschedule dates are in place for the match that will now take place on Sunday April 10th 2022 at North Harbour Stadium.
The match will now take place following the completion of the 2022 AFL New Zealand Premiership season and provide a strong lead in to future representative matches against the proposed AFL Academy clash.
Due to the 6 month delay to the scheduling of the match, playing squad selection will be reassessed in 2022 leading in to the new date.
AFLNZ will work with partners monitoring the current and future status of travel. Please follow this link for up to date information https://covid19.govt.nz/
