Sell-out for second Whangarei RWC match

by Jason Dawson

With the sell-out, we want to avoid disappointed fans showing up at the stadium expecting gate sales, especially those who might travel to Whangarei from other parts of the region or Auckland. There are no more tickets available.


“We are really pleased with the way Northlanders have taken to RWC 2011 and got behind all their visiting teams– the sea of red at last week’s match was wonderful and we are hoping to see it again for Tonga v Japan,” says Rugby New Zealand 2011 General Manager Marketing and Communications, Shane Harmon.


“If Northlanders need another taste of RWC excitement or have missed out on local games then they should look to go to matches down the road at Eden Park and North Harbour. There are still tickets available for many matches including the exciting quarter final and semi-final match-ups.” added Mr Harmon.


Fans are reminded to plan ahead and allow plenty of time to get to the match, especially as there will be a number of road closures around the Northland Events Centre and you will only be able to walk up to the games.


The Pool A match between Tonga v Japan kicks-off at 7.30pm at the Northland Events Centre in Whangarei.
