The Dragons are back in Albury/Wodonga, streaming live and free on Kayo.

On Friday 21 to Sunday 23 January 2022 on Gateway Lakes, Dragon Boat Victoria in partnership with Wodonga Council and Albury City are bringing the World Cup Format again to the region.

The event will be streamed live and free on Kayo Sports. Fans can stream the action for free by downloading the Kayo Sports app or visiting www.kayosports.com.au/freebies and registering for a Freebies account. Kayo Freebies are free, and no credit card details are required to register and start streaming.

In April 2021 the event attracted over 67,000 viewers on Kayo.

Over 700 paddlers from all over Australia will compete in 100m, 200m relay, 500m and 1km pursuit format and race for the various awards.

The weekend is also an opportunity for members of the community to experience the thrill and physical challenge of participating in the sport of dragon boat racing where the focus on teamwork will reward you with success. Dragon boat racing has cultural origins in ancient China and has evolved into a highly competitive sport right across the globe.
