Senior City v Country to Return in 2021

The prestigious City v Country tournament will return in 2021 for Senior prospects, with a new tournament format at hand.

Selected from the 2021 NSW Senior State Cup held in Coffs Harbour, it is an opportunity for players to represent their region alongside the game’s best.

Senior City v Country will be played on Saturday 12 June at Central Coast Regional Sporting Complex, Tuggerah NSW, with Juniors to be played the following day – Sunday 13 June.

The tournament format differs from that of the Juniors and previous years. It will be played as a three-game series, between only two regions – City and Country.

Teams will play three 40-minute games, with no Finals.

City teams will be represented by associations in the Sydney basin from Hornsby in the North, to Penrith in the West, Campbelltown in the South and the East coastline. Any associations outside this border will represent Country.

City representatives will be selected from the top four finishing City teams in Division 1 at the NSW Senior State Cup.

Country representatives will be selected from the top four finishing Country teams in Division 1 at the NSW Senior State Cup. If there are not four teams in Division 1, they can be selected from Division 2 teams.

2021 Senior State Cup Coaches will be required to complete the Senior Rating Form for their own team, based on player performance at the NSW State Cup tournament. The form must be submitted by Wednesday 24 March.

The 2021 Junior City v Country teams will be announced tomorrow (16 March) via our website and Facebook page.

Australian Oztag look forward to the return of the annual City v Country tournaments and the level of talent that accompanies them.
