Water Polo Australia versus Japan Test Match Series will be hosted in Brisbane, January 2019.
On the international water polo circuit, teams will host other nations as part of official test matches registered for each country. The Australia versus Japan Brisbane Test Match Series will provide squads the opportunity to impress selectors as they continue to vie for Olympic Games selection.
January 2019 will mark 18 months to go until the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, with both sides using these test matches as ideal preparation opportunities.
Australia will host Japan for a week, with both teams to train together throughout that week as well as compete in two official test matches. Japan will send two squads, Men’s and Women’s, that will consist of approximately 16 to 18 players along with support teams of 5 to 6 for each.
