It is with regret that I inform you that the Inaugural Eden Park Touch Challenge has been cancelled. I personally wish to apologize to those managers and players who wont be getting the chance to set foot on the hallowed turf as was advertised and promoted.
Despite an enormous amount of my personal resource and energy invested in the project, as well as 45 confirmed teams entered as of this morning the decision was made by the event’s custodians NZ Rugby, Auckland Rugby, Auckland Touch and Eden Park.
Its fair to say all parties expected a better and quicker uptake and its such a great shame the event was unable to sell out.
Most importantly organizers, that have paid by direct credit or online please can you send me your bank details and I will arrange a refund immediately.
Sorry, sorry, sorry!
