The Kanga Cup Organising Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2020 McDonald’s Kanga Cup, which was scheduled to be held in Canberra from the 5th to 10th of July 2020.
Due to the Australian Government’s restrictions on all non-essential interstate and international travel, the Committee decided it was not possible to celebrate McDonald’s Kanga Cup’s 30th birthday in 2020.
Tournament Director Megan Salic said that the decision to cancel this year’s event was a tough one to make.
“It is disappointing that the largest youth football tournament in the Southern Hemisphere, the McDonald’s Kanga Cup, will not go ahead this year,” Ms Salic said.
“We want to ensure that our interstate and international participants, who make up nearly 75% of teams at the McDonald’s Kanga Cup, have a chance to compete at our 30th birthday.
“We look forward to celebrating our delayed birthday party with you all from the 4th to 9th of July 2021.”
