The NZCPA board of directors has made the decision to disband our two selected U21 teams and the two Senior training squads for the delayed World championships due to be held in April 2021. This decision was made in consultation with our player groups, coaches and management.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our players, coaches and managers for their dedication to teams and squads. Especially those long hours training and planning over the last few uncertain months since the COVID-19 pandemic caused the postponement of the 2020 World Champs to 2021. NZCPA will ensure that the two named teams will be recorded in the NZCPA yearly report and our history.
NZCPA will continue to engage with ICF around any future planning to host the World Championships in October 2021; their cancellation and the implications of these decisions. We will continue to consult our stakeholders to share in this process.
