The Te Matatini National Kapa Haka Championships have been postponed from February next year until 2022

A spokesperson for the Te Matatini National Board says they came to the decision after consulting with it's strategic partners, Auckland Council, Ngati Whātūa Ōrakei, Eden Park, the Kiingitanga and Government, identifying the threat of community transmission of COVID-19, and the financial impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on kapa haka in Aotearoa.

The proposed dates for Te Matatini 2022 at this stage are February 22-26.
