The New Zealand Ice Hockey Federation in association with Audi Quattro Winter Games NZ are proud to present the Trans-Tasman Challenge; a three-game test series of international ice hockey 6th, 7th and 8th of September 2018 in Queenstown, New Zealand.
Please note that we have kept prices the same as 2017 and again are offering family pass and multi-game pricing to keep it as affordable as possible for hockey fans to support their teams and newcomers to get a taste of what we all love.
The Audi Quattro Winter Games NZ in 2017 was the last time that New Zealand and Australia met with a 2-1 series win going to Australia in the final game. The Ice Blacks will be out for redemption and to prove their superiority on home ice.
New Zealand’s Ice Blacks and Australia’s Mighty Roos have both recently returned from the 2018 IIHF World Championship Division II Group A and B tournaments where both earnt silver medals. The two national teams are separated by only one group with New Zealand in Group B and Australia in Group A.
The three-game test series promises anaction packed, edge of your seat excitement with all the passion you’d expect when there’s Trans-Tasman pride on the line.
