NEW-ZEALAND

ASIA/PACIFIC ZONE

With Australia, Japan and Singapore, New-Zealand is a member of the largest FIPFA zone in surface area and the organization of international competitions is challenging due to the long distances.

The competitive level attained by the New Zealand athletes is impressive, in part thanks to the support of their very energetic neighbouring country, Australia.
