The schedule for the upcoming 2018 Asia-Oceania Korfball Championships has been updated once again, following the withdrawal of the Indian team from the tournament. As the tournament will now consist of 10 teams, instead of the previously scheduled 11, Macau switches into Pool A, in order to have two balanced pools. This, in essence, means Australia will play Macau instead of India during the pool games.
All teams, not just those in Pool A, will now receive a bye during the pool rounds. Australia still has the bye on the first matchday, as scheduled, and will still open their campaign against Korea on July 30. This match has changed time slightly, with the game kicking off at 7:15PM ACST, 15 minutes earlier than previously scheduled. All options to follow the game live will be announced as soon as the information becomes available.
As there are now just four matches being played on each pool round matchday, match times have changed. All changes can be found on the National Team page, where the schedule has been updated. Additionally, the schedule for the cross-over and ranking matches has also been updated to account for a 10-team competition.
