2019 Trans-Tasman Challenge Ice Hockey Series presented by Queenstown Resort College.
The New Zealand Ice Hockey Federation (NZIHF) in association with Winter Games NZ have announced the return of the Trans-Tasman Challenge; a three-test series of international ice hockey between New Zealand’s Ice Blacks and Australia’s Mighty Roos presented by Queenstown Resort College.
The 2019 Trans-Tasman Challenge brings together New Zealand and Australia, two rival sporting nations, as part of the 10th Winter Games NZ. New Zealand and Australia last met at the 2017 and 2018 Winter Games NZ. Each country has won the three-game series twice, New Zealand's Ice Blacks in 2009 and 2018 and Australia's Mighty Roos in 2011 and 2017. The Mighty Roos will be out for redemption while the Ice Blacks will want to, once again, prove their superiority on home ice.
The three-game test series promises action-packed, edge of your seat excitement with all the passion you’d expect when there’s Trans-Tasman pride on the line. New Zealand’s Ice Blacks and Australia’s Mighty Roos, international ice hockey underdogs that punch well above their weight, have both recently returned from the 2019 IIHF World Championship Division II Group A and B tournaments. New Zealand are ranked 40th and Australia are currently ranked 35th in the world of international ice hockey.
