COVID 19 Update: 2020 National Tertiary Championship Events

New Zealand has now entered an unprecedented four-week Covid-19 lockdown.

As a result, University and Tertiary Sport NZ (in conjunction with NSO partners) have cancelled and postponed all events scheduled between now and the end of June.

The priority for New Zealand is slowing the spread of transmission of COVID-19.

To date, we can confirm the following with regard to UTSNZ National Tertiary Championship events:

  • Aon New Zealand University Rowing Championship - cancelled. 
    • The full statement from Rowing NZ can be found here
  • National Tertiary Futsal Championship - postponed.
    • An update on this tournament will be made on or before the 2nd of May.
  • National Tertiary 3x3 Championship  - postponed. 
    • An update on this tournament will be made late April/May.
    •  Note, FISU Oceania are also assessing the Oceania 3x3 qualifier event scheduled for Fiji in July and the impact of national qualifying events being postponed. We will provide further updates on this event as confirmed.
  • National Tertiary Hockey 5s Championshippostponed.
    • An update on this tournament will be made on or before the 2nd of May.

UTSNZ will work on the possibility of rescheduling the postponed events within the latter half of 2020. The possibility of doing so however, will also depend on National Sporting Organisation calendars and resources.

All other National Tertiary Championship events scheduled between July and September (including Volleyball, Ultimate, Badminton, Table Tennis, 5x5 Basketball and Netball) currently remain as scheduled unless notified otherwise.
