2019 in Review
From the Chair and CEO
This 2019 Annual Report was published in April 2020, while the country is on COVID-19 Level 4 Lockdown. At this point, Rugby is currently on hold in what is a rapidly evolving situation. The Annual Report reflects the 2019 rugby calendar year, NZR’s strategic priorities and achievements in 2019, as well as our goals for 2020 prior to the advent of COVID-19.
We recognise the environment has rapidly changed and as we move through 2020, this is a time for us to review and assess the absolute priorities for our game. We acknowledge this is a difficult time for many in New Zealand and around the world. As the situation unfolds, NZR is actively working with everyone involved in the New Zealand rugby ecosystem to respond to this challenging time. Together, we are committed to ensuring that rugby continues to thrive into the future.
