When is the Bledisloe Cup?
Few rivalries in sport are as fierce as Australia vs New Zealand and when it comes to rugby union, their battles are etched into the sports’ history.
First contested back in 1931, the Bledisloe Cup is a series of games between Australia and New Zealand – that tends to take place every two years. Many formats of the Bledisloe Cup have been trialled – with 2, 3 and 4 match series having been played previously.
The 2020 Bledisloe Cup is due to be played over 3 matches although the lack of fans in attendance at the Bledisloe Cup will see the tournament played in rather remarkable circumstances.
The 2020 Bledisloe Cup begins on Sunday 11th October 2020 at Sky Stadium, Wellington before the second game is played a week later in Auckland – with the date and venue of the final match still to be decided.
