ANZAC DAY LACROSSE COMPETITION 2016

Melbourne 24-25 April 2016

Between ALA & NZALU men’s & women’s teams.

The Australian and New Zealand lacrosse associations (ALA & NZALU respectively) have arranged for teams from New Zealand to travel to Melbourne for a 2016 ANZAC Day Lacrosse Competition. The 2016 ANZAC Day Competition is being hosted by the MCC Lacrosse Club on behalf of the ALA.

Background:

In 1914 NSW and NZ were set to play lacrosse against each other – the game that never was. This match had to be called off because of the outbreak of the Great War - and subsequently that was the end of NZ lacrosse (for men) for the next 86 years.

Hence it became the centenary lacrosse game re-scheduled and played in 2014 and provided an important moment to acknowledge an important piece of both countries culture and history.

Details:

The Australian teams will be ALA (Australian Lacrosse Association) commemorative teams.

There will be both men’s and women’s teams participating.
