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!
We are still going ahead with TOUCH this evening.
In the event of heavy rains and possible dangerous playing conditions we would follow the procedure for cancellations

Just a reminder that we start a whole new 10-week summer Touch competition at the Airport on Tuesday week (19th January).
The cost for the season is $400 ($40 per game) and the competition has 2 grades “Social mens and Social mixed”. Social is a relative term – but mostly the people who play are from companies in a around the airport. We do accept family and social teams outside of this.
Games are played between 5:30 and 7:30pm.
