Australia will host MLF tournaments

Australia will host MLF tournaments

Major League Fishing announced an exclusive licensing agreement today with Hiqua Fishing, a new pioneering force in Australian fishing tournaments designed to provide Australian anglers an unprecedented opportunity to elevate their fishing prowess and gain international recognition. The agreement provides Australian anglers the opportunity to compete in MLF-sanctioned fishing tournaments in 2024.

Hiqua Fishing will run a series of tournaments that advance anglers who are citizens or permanent residents of Australia to the International Division at the MLF Toyota Series Championship beginning in 2024. Two anglers from MLF Australia will compete as pros – with MLF providing a fully-rigged boat for each – and two anglers will compete as co-anglers.

MLF Australia will operate under the direction of Jan Oosthuizen, CEO of Hiqua Fishing.

“MLF Australia is excited to work with Major League Fishing and to be involved in the growth and expansion of Australian fishing,” said Oosthuizen. “Hiqua Fishing is thrilled to be at the forefront of this transformative new venture, offering a tournament experience that goes beyond the ordinary and adding to Australia’s magnificent fishing tournament platform.”

Said MLF VP of Operations Dave Washburn: “We’re excited to add Australia to the growing list of countries that are offering MLF tournaments. MLF Australia will be the ultimate platform for Australian anglers to showcase their skills on a global stage, and we look forward to the addition of talented Australian anglers to the MLF family in 2024.”
