How to livestream the national U18 national hockey champs

News Corp and Hockey Australia have partnered for an unprecedented livestream event that will feature more than 70 matches in April from the 2021 Australian under-15s and under-18s championships.

The under-15s event will be played in Bathurst, NSW, and the under-18s event in Launceston, Tasmania.

The agreement will see matches from the tournament in Launceston from April 8-16 and the competition in Bathurst from April 9-15 shown on News Corp's various mastheads.

Despite recent coronavirus issues in Brisbane, the 15s tournament is still scheduled to go ahead with 23 teams from NSW, ACT, WA, Tasmania, Queensland, Northern Territory, South Australia and Victoria - including 12 girls and 11 boys teams.

The under 18s tournament in Tasmania is also going ahead with a full complement of teams including 10 men's sides and 10 in the women's.
