Mitre 10 Cup History
The Mitre 10 Cup was known as the Air New Zealand Cup when it first formed in 2006. Its origins trace back to a previous tournament called the National Provincial Championship which was founded in 1976.
In 2006, the National Provincial Championship was split into the Mitre 10 Cup and the Mitre Heartland Championship. The 14 strongest teams formed the Mitre 10 Cup whilst the remaining teams formed the Mitre Heartland Championship
The Mitre 10 Cup allowed for the strongest teams from across the country to compete against each other. The previous National Provincial Championship split the teams into distinct North and South geographical categories.
As a result of the expansion of the Super Rugby Tournament and the Rugby Championship, players who feature for the All Blacks have been required to have their appearances limited in the competition. This has allowed the competition to focus and develop and unearth promising local talent.
Mitre 10 Cup Previous Winners
