(Update: Due to a change in circumstances, TFA will now be looking to field an additional team – Women’s 35’s.)
Touch Football Australia (TFA) and its national representative teams are about to enter the final year and the most important period of the current World Cup cycle. Our aim as always is for the best possible teams and athletes to represent Australia at the 2019 World Cup.
TFA has a proud record in international Touch and Australia currently holds the Open and Masters World Cups and we are extremely motivated to maintain this status at the 2019 event.
The Masters World Cup will be held, in conjunction with the Open World Cup, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from the 28th April – 5th May 2019.
At this stage TFA is looking to enter teams in the following divisions:
Men: Over 30s, 35s, 40s, 45s, 50s
Women: Over 27s, 35s
Mixed: Senior Mixed
There is no guarantee that all these divisions will go ahead as viability is based on sufficient team entries being received by FIT. There are currently several divisions offered at the event which are not viable therefore TFA will not be seeking nominations for those divisions.
The following document outlines the nomination process for the selection of the Australian Masters Teams for the 2019 Masters World Cup.
More detailed information on the overall tour will become available in the next few months, however indicative costs for a player levy, based on previous overseas international events, would be in the area of $2500.
TFA will implement a selection process whereby players are initially required to nominate for selection. All players who nominate will be considered for an invitation to the Selection Camp to be held in January 2019. Teams will be selected following this selection camp. Once selected, World Cup Teams will then attend team training camps in the lead up to the event.
Please note: ALL interested players must nominate through the official link to be considered.
For further information on this process or any queries please contact the TFA High Performance Manager, Wayne Grant, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0411 270 306
