In July, the International Tag Federation (ITF) announced the postponement for the second time of the Tag World Cup, Limerick, Ireland 2022. The postponed Tag World Cup will still be hosted by the University of Limerick and the Irish Tag Rugby Association in August 2023.
In understanding that many International players had been selected for the TWC 2021 & have been patiently waiting to represent their country the ITF have developed a unique event that takes Covid-19 travel restrictions into account whilst giving players international competition.
“The event was the brain child of Australian ITF Board member Bill Harrigan. It will see the International Tag Series played in three different areas of the World. The ITF is extremely excited to unveil the tournament & the logo that will be on proud display in Europe, Australia and New Zealand at the same time as the postponed Tag World Cup would have been played,” commented Stuart McConnell (ITF Chairman).
Bill Harrigan (GM Australian Oztag, ITF Board Member) said, “We just don’t know when overseas travel will open up so this tournament will allow all our international players the opportunity to represent their Heritage countries safely within Australia, New Zealand & Ireland. All the players who were selected for the original TWC 2021 will finally get the opportunity to wear their jersey & play.”
Event dates for International Tag Series:
Europe – University of Limerick, Ireland 5th -7th August 2022 Australia – Coffs Harbour 5th – 7th August 2022 New Zealand – Auckland, Bruce Pullman Park, 11th -13th November 2022
Eligible Heritage nations will receive an invitation to this tournament in the coming weeks.
